Luke Hall MP has continued to support the build of a brand new community centre for the Ladden Garden Village, and it has this week been confirmed that local Conservatives are set to approve almost £3million in funding for the important project.
The new centre will serve the residents of Ladden Garden Village in North Yate, providing a space to bring the new community together and will feature facilities such as a Community Hall, Activity Rooms and a Café.
Construction is set to begin in 2023, subject to planning permission, and will be more than 1,000sqm in size. Totalling £2,930,000, the investment includes funding secured by the Council’s Conservative Administration from the developers of the development, and also includes a further £140,000 from the Council to enhance the environmental credentials of the centre, helping to keep it low carbon and energy efficient for the users. Proposals to allocate the funding are set to be approved by the Cabinet during their meeting on Monday, February 7.
Thornbury and Yate MP Luke Hall welcomed the news and said: “Families in Ladden Village deserve to have the best facilities on their doorstep, and I am thrilled we are delivering this exciting new community centre. This will a great addition to the vibrant Ladden Village neighbourhood.”
Cllr Toby Savage, Leader of South Gloucestershire Council, added: “I am delighted that this Conservative-run Council is continuing to invest in our new and growing communities, providing the facilities and infrastructure that residents need, and ensuring they have every reason to be proud to call South Gloucestershire home.
"I am keen to see this community centre become a cornerstone in the new Ladden Garden Village which will provide a range of services and opportunities for local people and look forward to seeing doors open in the coming years.”
