We’ve been awarded the money through central government’s Getting Building Fund to transform the Sovereign Centre in Weston-super-Mare into a multi-use, community-focused events space.
Planning approval was granted in October and the ambitious plans include:
- workspaces for business and entrepreneurs, which will support more local working following a post-pandemic decrease in commuting
- enhancing the quality and selection of food and drink within a new dining area
- creating space to support active lifestyles and wellbeing, such as a bike hub
- revamping key parts of the interior and exterior of the building.
Work to transform the centre starts in December.
We also need your help in choosing a new name for the centre and a consultation will take place in the coming weeks.
It’s a community space so it’s important the community has their say on what the centre will be called.
