Community Hub, Sheffield
Client: Jaguar Estates
Project: New Community Building
Location: Woodhouse, Sheffield
Self Architects have been appointed on a project for a new community centre in the Woodhouse area of Sheffield, offering a range of local facilities including keeping the local library.
Plans are well under way for the facility in Woodhouse village which will include giving a new home to the local library by moving it across the road into the new state-of-the-art building on Sheffield Road. The single-storey community centre, which is being built by local developer Jaguar Estates Group, will be run by local people and will offer a variety of other facilities, giving a focal point for the local community.
The project, which has been supported by Sheffield City Council, is scheduled to start in early 2019, following detailed Planning Approval. A larger scheme will include eight bungalows and four houses to be built on the site at the junction of Stradbroke Road and Sheffield Road, which will also retain some urban green space.
