Darwin Green sports pavilion plan is unveiled





This is what the sports pavilion planned for the Darwin Green development could look like.

A planning application has been submitted by BDW Cambridgeshire and North West Consortium of Landowners to build it at the development off Huntingdon Road, to the north-west of Cambridge.

When outline plans were approved in 2013 for more than 1,500 homes, as well as a primary school and community facilities, a sports pavilion was a condition of approval.

The single storey building will be beside sports pitches and include four 20-person changing rooms, four shower areas, including a disabled shower, plus toilets and an official’s changing room with shower area.

A large club room is also planned alongside a kitchen area and storage facilities.

An air source heat pump, rather than gas, will heat it.

Planning documents with the application describe it as “an exciting, high quality and welcoming civic building which sits well in the context of the local centre and uses robust materials and contemporary detailing to ensure longevity”.

The documents add: “The building will provide a feature in the central park which engenders a sense of ownership and pride in the community.

“The building has been designed to work hard inside and out. As well as the generous but efficient internal layout, every elevation provides a community function. These include a recycling centre, bike parking, integrated seating and a covered external terrace.”
