We are making good progress on our plans to build a new bandroom and you can find information here about what we are constructing and how the planning and building work is progressing.
What we are building:
Our site is at the corner of Rectory Hill and School Lane, on currently unused land adjacent to the Rectory Meadows Surgery. We have a building design for a single story community building with a band hall (approx 100sqm), two additional small teaching rooms, storage, a staff room, a library and toilets together with parking for up to 24 vehicles. Click the pictures below to see the site plan, floor layout and elevations.
Our progress so far
The trustees of the band have signed a 70 year lease for use of the land and planning permission has been granted by Chiltern District Council to construct the bandroom.
An architect has been appointed to provide the detailed design and a qualified project manager will oversee the whole project.
Preliminary work related to the site is now underway including planning of services connections and checking the ground conditions prior to building.
It is planned to start the site work in Spring 2019, starting with the access driveway onto Rectory Hill. This will be followed by laying out the parking area and site preparation work for the building itself.
