Kings Weald Community Centre and Public Open Space Takes Shape
17th August 2020
The new community centre and public open space at the Kings Weald development at the former Keymer Tiles site in the east of Burgess Hill is finally taking shape.
Forming part of phase two of the 475 home development, the shell of the community centre has been in place for quite a while, but unsurprisingly, its completion is well down the pecking order compared to the homes that have been built and sold already!
In fact, the reserved matters application for phase 2 of the Keymer Tiles site redevelopment was approved way back on 27th January 2017! In that time, the new CoOp - located just a few yards from the community centre - has been open to the public for quite a while.
The rear of the community centre
The community building will feature a 17.5 x 10 metre sports hall, a kitchen, cafe, creche, male, female and disabled toilets. The first floor will be a viewing gallery for the sports hall. There's also two meeting/function rooms, more toilets and a balcony.
The masterplan for the public open space
The public open space will consist of a
grass sports field, a multi-use games area, mini soccer pitch, a playspace with various fitness and play equipment, some ponds....and an orchard!
The multi-use games area
This will be the children's play area.
Here's the row of ponds.
There's even a 'Wyvern' dragon statue keeping watch over the multi-use games area!
