Our vision is for a Pavilion focused on serving local residents i.e. members of the community within a 20‑minute walk of Moormead Park. We will encourage the shared use of the Pavilion by a broad range of people across the neighbourhood, including schools, churches and organisations focused on junior sport. We want to support existing park users as well as members of the community who have previously been unable to use the park due to a disability or lack of facilities (e.g. toilets).
Planning Permission Achieved!
Thanks to all those that helped, donated or wrote supportive comments on the planning portal. Your collective contribution was noted by the Planning Committee.
The old Pavilion in Moormead Park, St Margarets has been neglected for many years and is currently unusable. The structure is unsafe and is beyond repair - a simple refurbishment was never an option.
The new Pavilion will have a café providing refreshments and toilet facilities for park users during opening hours, throughout the year; it will not apply for a licence to sell alcohol. There will be indoor seating as well as a convenient kiosk to collect a drink or snacks while playing with children, walking the dog or watching your child’s sports team at the weekend.
There will be equipment storage for junior sports organisations, encouraging more outdoor activities for our young people. The Pavilion will also support the St Margarets Fair on Fair Day.
