An Evening of Celebration to Discuss Plan for the Regeneration of The Pavilion, Castle Green Hereford


Recommended Posts

Last night Hereford Voice attended a wonderful event at The Pavilion, Castle Green in Hereford, which we were kindly invited to join and celebrate very exciting plans for the regeneration of the historic Pavilion building as part of StrongerHereford.

There were plenty local people at the event organised by our lovely Friends of Castle Green including the members of the StrongerHereford board, the building regeneration architect Oliver Steels from Errand Studio as well as Mayors from other towns, the manager of the Hereford Youth Canoe Club our MP Jesse Norman, local Councillors and the Bishop of Hereford to name just a few.

The Friends of Castle Green director Mark Hubbard gave a fabulous opening speech explaining his long family history and connection with the Castle Green, The Pavilion and his home next door, which had also been occupied by many generations of his family, it was wonderful to hear his Infectious enthusiasm.

Please find below a few photographs that we took during the evening together with some new exclusive illustrations (please be aware that they have only applied for planning permission, so there are likely to be some revisions to the plans submitted).

Whilst respecting its Georgian heritage, the plans submitted recently aim to create a modern, accessible space and iconic visitor attraction in the heart of Hereford.

The revitalised building will provide cafe facilities and flexible community meeting space, as well as the opportunity to celebrate local arts and heritage and a revived home for the Hereford Youth Canoe Club (HYCC).

The once forgotten Pavilion will become a new and much needed thriving and sustainable community hub, a defining visitor attraction in the city and a source of pride for residents.

The project has been made possible thanks to a successful £22.4million funding bid for the City of Hereford via the Stronger Towns Fund.

The Pavilion project is one of fourteen projects elected for funding and FoCG has submitted a planning application for a £1.56 million regeneration of this historic building on the banks of the River Wye.
