Pre-match drop-in session for public to have say on Bath City’s Twerton Park regeneration

April 13, 2018

Bath City FC is holding the second of two meetings tomorrow to discuss the redevelopment of its Twerton Park ground.

The community-owned club is working with London-based developer Greenacre Capital to transform part of its site to provide new sports facilities and a community hub. 

The scheme could also include the regeneration of the parade of shops on the High Street in Twerton as well as reduced-income housing and an element of purpose-built student accommodation.

As part of an ongoing engagement, people living in Twerton are being invited to attend tomorrow’s drop-in consultation session, where they will be able to share their ideas on what the scheme, particularly the community hub, could include.

Tomorrow’s session takes place in Charlie’s Bar at Twerton Park between 12pm and 3pm, ahead of The Romans game against Hungerford Town. It follows a similar event on Wednesday.

Bath City chair Nick Blofeld said “The consultation drop-in sessions will again help inform the next stage of this exciting project to redevelop part of Twerton Park, which we believe will secure the future of Bath City FC and deliver real benefits for the surrounding community.

“We are still in the early stages and we are keen to have as much input as possible from the Twerton community and those who live in the area.

“We ran a successful workshop last year where stakeholders and residents shared their thoughts and ideas on what the new development could include.

“The feedback gathered at that event has proved invaluable to the project team but now we want to give more people the opportunity to have their say, particularly concerning the community elements.

“We hope as many people as possible will come along and talk with members of the project team about their ideas for the community hub.”

The National League South club will bring detailed plans and designs on the redevelopment project to the public later in the year.

The plans follow victory last May by Bath City’s Supporters Society in a two-year battle to become its majority shareholder and transform it into a community-owned football club.

Anyone needing help with access should call 01225 423087 to make arrangements ahead of visiting the presentation.
