Project: The Riverside Centre

The Riverside site has been underutilised for 20 years with one single interest sport making use of the site.

Disrepair of the less visible elements is evident on inspection. The structure of the pavilion building is sound, but the internal facilities and services are in poor condition and not sustainable as with modern builds.

Upper Calder Valley Renaissance (UCVR) has had ownership since 2016 and it has seen many minor improvements to enable the site to widen its use in the last four years, but it needs serious investment to allow income-generating activities to make it sustainable.

The investment will be used to refurbish and modernise the pavilion building so it is fit for purpose. The site will be developed into a modern multi-use facility with leisure and course accommodation.

There will be a café to complement the recreation, leisure and sports facilities. Riverside’s transformation, on a main access route, will announce the town’s ambitions and progress.

UCVR is a not-for-profit social purpose organisation and funds will be reinvested in facilities, employment and maintenance.
