Invitation to Herne Hill Velodrome Public Consultation from 19 March – Replacement Pavilion

INVITATION :  Public Consultation on proposed plans for replacement of Herne Hill Velodrome’s derelict Grandstand with a new Pavilion

Herne Hill Velodrome Trust should like to invite all who may be interested in the Velodrome (HHV), and future cycling there, to see and comment on our proposals for this third Pavilion Phase of its renovation, before preliminary submission for planning consent.

The plans will be on display at St Barnabas Church Hall, Dulwich Village, SE21 7BT, in the Back Room, on Wednesday 19, Thursday 20 and Wednesday 26 March, 7pm-9pm, and in the Main Hall, (wheelchair accessible session), on Saturday 22 March, 10am-2pm.  And we shall be there to answer questions and hear your views.

The HHV track was resurfaced in 2011 – Phase 1.   A junior track, multiuse games area and track lighting were added in 2013, thanks to Southwark’s Olympic Legacy Project – Phase 2, providing cycling facilities for all ages and abilities.

This, Phase 3, is for a new Pavilion, much the same size and height, and in almost the same place, as the existing, condemned, Victorian Grandstand.  We are very privileged to have it designed by Mike Taylor, of Hopkins, architects of the Olympic Velodrome.  On the lower floor, are changing rooms, showers, toilets, physio and office rooms.  A lift and stairs give access to the upper floor’s club and facilities rooms, kitchen and a veranda cafe, framed by the Grandstand’s iconic, 1891 cast iron pillars (reused), trackside.

Cycle storage remains in the containers on their present site, with a tented canopy over the central area to provide protected space in bad weather.

The added facilities allow the Velodrome site to be used for more of each day, for more of the year, and the Pavilion will improve the HHV experience greatly, without significantly increasing intensity of use or the need for an additional vehicle access.

Please come and tell us what you think.  There will be visitor survey forms at St Barnabas Church Hall.

The Pavilion plans will also be on the website http://www.hhvt.org/regeneration/pavilion with links to FAQ’s and an electronic form for you to submit any comments.  Alternatively email us at planning@hhvt.org or write to Hillary Peachey at 118 Burbage Road, SE24 9HD.

Yours sincerely

Hillary Peachey
