The Project Team which consisted of Mrs Joy Cowell, Chair of the CCA, MKC, GLPC, and Baseball/Softball UK are making progress towards the development of Conniburrow Community Centre and Playing Field to accommodate Football, Baseball/Softball pitches.
Proposed Layout of Community Centre
Final plans are now in place for a new pavilion at Conniburrow. Last year arsonists destroyed the old building used by many Conniburrow community groups. Arising from the ashes will be a 336-m² pavilion with the rebuild funded from fire insurance monies and developers S106 contributions – not your taxes.
There will be a 126-m² hall, meeting room, kitchen, changing room and toilets for the new baseball diamond and properly drained football pitches –one adult and four junior.
Planning approval and tenders for the construction of the new building are being sought during December, with works on site due to start in March 2012 with a 20-week construction period.
Ground works have started on baseball and football pitches, to be completed early in 2012. Seeding will take place next spring to allow a two-year growth before football games are played at the start of the 2014 season.
