Public Consultation for STFC Highworth

Saturday, 16th June 2018 from 09:30 until 14:00

Swindon Town Football Club have released details of their proposed new training centre and headquarters complex which is to be located on the former Twelve Oaks Golf Club site at Highworth.

The Club are holding a community consultation event in the Council Offices at 3 Gilberts Lane, Highworth, SN6 7FB on Saturday 16thJune 2018 from 09:30 until 14:00 where plans of the proposals will be on display and representatives from Swindon Town and the consultant team will be available to deal with questions.

The new complex includes approximately 26,000 square feet (2,400 square metres) of purpose built training centre, gymnasium and headquarters offices utilising the former main golf club building as a players’ restaurant and catering facility. The proposal includes use of the former golf course for eight grass training pitches and a full size all-weather illuminated pitch.  The access from Lechlade Road is to be improved along with the provision of new additional car parking facilities.

The new proposal, estimated in the region of £6m will be accompanied by a proposal for residential development on land formally forming part of the golf club but having planning permission for use as a holiday lodge site.    The principle of development of this area of land was established by the decision to allow holiday lodges on it and it is proposed that the lodges are replaced with permanent new homes.  This will be a key element in funding the new training facility.

Computer generated images of the new training centre building and related complex along with the site masterplan plan and architectural elevations are available below.

All will be available to view in greater detail at the exhibition.
