Residents at our Bridleways development can look forward to making full use of the new community centre in 2020 after the ownership of the building was legally transferred to Cherwell District Council.
The Longford Park Consortium, comprising Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, Barratt Homes, and Bovis Homes, built the facility as part of the planning requirements for the development. The transfer to council ownership took place in January 2020 and the building is now available for the growing community to use.
Alongside a main hall designed for a variety of uses and events with a fully demountable stage and PA system, the community centre also includes meeting rooms and a youth wing with equipment such as table football and pool tables.
Mark Edmonds, Managing Director at Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, said: “We understand that Longford Park residents have been eager to use the community centre for some time and I would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst the legal details were ironed out.
“It’s incredibly important to us that we create developments that not only include quality new homes but also a range of facilities that allow a real community to grow and flourish. We are all looking forward to seeing how Longford Park residents and the wider Banbury community make use of the new centre for many years to come.”
