    We are urging residents to have their say on proposals for the future of the Burton Stone community centre. Residents can have their say at drop-in sessions, online or by post before 30 March 2017.

    Our proposal is to build a new 150m2 community space, allowing the majority of the current user groups to continue to deliver activities, classes and events for the benefit of local residents. The community space would be built as part of an extension to Marjorie Waite Court the sheltered housing facility next door to the existing community centre.
