Youth centre vision goes on show

PLANS to build a new £350,000 youth facility in Bramley have gone on display to the public.

Bramley Parish Council has submitted a planning application to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, seeking permission to build the pavilion at Clift Meadow.

The funds for the project come from developers’ contributions, specifically for young people in the village.

Artist’s impressions of how the facility would look were laid out for villagers to see, and parish councillors were on hand to answer any questions at the public exhibition, in Clift Meadow Pavilion, on December 14.

The project will also include a new trail around the field, an outside gym and play park in Bromelia Close.

The parish council secured permission from the Clift Meadow Trust, which owns the site, to develop the land.

Chris Holland, chairman of Bramley Parish Council, said: “People are not using this area because it’s not vibrant enough. The idea is to make this a hub of recreation.”

The new building, in Minchens Lane, will include a café, kitchen and office, which is expected to be used some of the time by police beat officers.

Cllr Holland said: “It will be somewhere for kids to go and chill out. That’s what they want. There will obviously have to be some supervision.”

Work is expected to begin in February, with the play facilities due for completion by April and the building set to be finished in September. The Clift Meadow Trust will manage the site.
