Thoughts being produced for new waterside Community Enterprise Center in Brimscombe Port Stroud News and Journal

“BRIMSCOMBE and Thrupp residents are being asked to help shape a vision for an eye-catching new waterside Community Enterprise Centre.
Ideas are being developed for the new building which would be part of the multi-million pound regeneration project at Brimscombe Port.
Brimscombe and Thrupp Parish Council has included a new community centre as a focal point in its overall wishes for the scheme, which is still in its early stages.
Initial ideas include a kitchen and foyer cafu00e9 with outside seating area, safe toddler play-space, large hall with seating for 100 people and a couple of smaller meeting rooms.
There could also be space for a youth drop-in area with pool, bar football and outside table te
is, as well as a hot-desking business start-up area for the self-employed.
As part of an ongoing public consultation, led by the Community Enterprise Centre Development Group, residents in the area are being asked to share their views and help progress and shape the proposals.
Negotiations are currently underway between the district and parish council and the community as to the location, use, cost and design of the public facility.
While nothing has yet been formally agreed, it is hoped the building will sit at the heart of the canal-side development and act as a social hub for the entire community.
Councillors want the facility to also serve the portu2019s 200 new homes, new and existing businesses in the surrounding area, and visitors and tourists.”
