The Guardroom building at the old RAF Upwood site offers Bury Parish a unique opportunity to develop a new community facility for its residents that’s fit for the 21st century whilst still preserving the history of the site and its place in our village.
Over the next few months, we will be asking residents for their views on the development of this new community facility, from how residents might wish to use the building, to how the building could look.
We appreciate that the building is currently in a poor state of repair and that considerable vandalism has taken place over the last few years, but we believe there is an opportunity to turn this building into something really special for the residents of Bury to use.
The Council has engaged Cambridgeshire ACRE a local rural development charity, to support us with this project. Cambridgeshire ACRE will undertake an independent consultation to find out what local people would like/need and report back to the Parish Council later in the year. The report will be used to shape the design of the new community
facility. One of our own ideas is that part of the refurbished building will provide a new and permanent office and meeting space for the Parish Council. We hope that as many residents as possible will share their views and ideas too.
The consultation will start in the next few weeks and further news and information will be posted on this page so all residents can get involved.
