Stanway Lakelands Centre

The new Stanway Lakelands Centre is an exciting development for this local area, showcasing our commitment to using developer contributions for residents’ benefit.

The new centre, sporting a distinctive architect design, will offer a number of opportunities for residents to play sports, take part in activities and meet up. The building offers maximum accessibility, boasting an accessible for all ‘Changing Places’ facility.

The centre is set to be built as phase one of a larger development project linked to the wider country park. The community building will inspire both indoor and outdoor activities, with plans for a hedgehog and kestrel house in the grounds. Parking will be available on site, as well as electric vehicle and bicycle charge points.
