Potential improvements to Pitstone Pavilion

As part of the neighbourhood planning process, and from previous surveys, we know that the community feels strongly that the pavilion site is developed and expanded to become a facility that can be utilised by a far larger sector of our local community. At the moment, the site is home to senior and junior football pitches along with a changing pavilion.  The facilities were passed to the community many years ago as part of the leisure contributions paid by the developers of the Castlemead estate, but don’t meet the current needs of the football leagues or all the required legislation for public buildings. The annual bonfire and fireworks event is hosted at the site, but the limited facilities restrict the number of other uses, both indoors and outdoors. The parish council has been working with a number of partners to develop potential proposals that will provide adequate changing facilities; a multi-function room that will be available for local meetings, events and indoor exercise etc; a parish store & office to enable a wider range of services to be delivered to the community; required ground-keeping and storage facilities and improved parking & access.  The proposed facilities will enable a greater range of indoor and outdoor services to be delivered to the community, now and in the future.  A planning application has now been submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council, a number of documents are attached below, and you can also view the full details on the AVDC website (https://publicaccess.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/online-applications//search.do?action=simple&searchType=Application) by searching for application number 18/04002/APP.   We encourage all residents to view the plans and submit your comments to AVDC.  The AVDC consultation is open until 10 December 2018. It must be stressed, that for these proposals to progress to implementation, the council will need to be successful with a number of applications for grant funding to raise the necessary funds for the construction costs. The council will keep residents updated with progress on both the planning application and our fundraising endeavours. Attachments:
