Tender being produced for building contractors

With funding confirmed for the regeneration of the Castle Green Pavilion building, Friends of Castle Green are now seeking expressions of interest from building contractors.

Subject to planning permission being granted by Herefordshire Council, 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 Centre (HYCC).

A Grade II listed Georgian pavilion atop medieval foundations, the building has had a variety of uses over the years, most recently as an art college and a training centre. Friends of Castle Green took over the building from Herefordshire Council in 2018 in a Community Asset Transfer and is working to restore the building to its Georgian splendour. In the meantime, it provides a public space for the local community.

The Stronger Towns funding of £1.5million will enable the Pavilion to 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.

It is anticipated that building works will begin in April 2023, with an Invitation to Tender to be issued in early December.
