We're please to announce, designs submitted to Maidstone Borough Council in May 2020 were granted planning consent and that our planned alterations have been warmly welcomed and supported by the local Ringlestone community, who understand the current building is no longer fit for purpose.
The brand new, enlarged centre we will continue the legacy of the local people who gave the land and founded the existing hall and the new development will incorporate the local Anglican church, increasing the halls capacity for mother and baby groups, children’s activities, music, dance, drama, keep fit, support groups, quizzes, shows and other activities.
The approved architecture was developed from ingredients found in the rhythm of gables on the adjacent terraced housing. This community hub building has sought to integrate harmoniously into the street scene, while being identifiable as a public community building. Despite the sloping topography, level access throughout the ground floor has been provided. The facade treatment also takes cues from the adjacent buildings, but with adjustments to the material finish, scale and a contemporary refinement in response to the prominence of this corner site.
Both the St. Faith’s Church and The Ringlestone Community Centre Development Group are now securing funding to complete the project and its hoped the doors to the new centre will be opened during the summer of 2022.
