Community spaces

To build a true community, St. Modwen recognises that people need spaces to meet and dwell. The Neighbourhood Centre at Kingsgrove will be a place to gather, celebrate and enjoy. The Centre comprises a community building, a central park, a sports pavilion, community gardens, play areas and a skate park.

Works began on a local park in March 2021 and are due to complete in September 2021. The Community Building is in planning stages, with works programmed to start towards the end of 2021.

In the meantime, St. Modwen is looking to install temporary uses for the area to make sure that those already living on site can use the space to greet, gather and relax. Keep up to date with our latest news by registering for updates, or follow us on Twitter.
