The Church Gate Centre, Lutterworth, Leicestershire

We are currently working on proposals for the extension and refurbishment of the Church Gate Centre in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. The existing building originally dates to the Victorian period but has seen subsequent additions. Today, it does not meet the modern standards required for a community building.

The proposals explore the upgrading of the building to meet the needs of the local community. The redesigned building will make a positive contribution to the area and will enhance the setting. The views towards the nearby Listed Church of St Mary from the extension are an important feature of the design, with tall glazed openings introduced. We have undertaken a public consultation with the local community to receive feedback on the proposals, and an initial pre-application scheme will soon be reviewed by the Council.
