Improving the Buildings on Highbury Fields
The council currently has £551,226.49, funded by s106 contributions, to improve the north east corner of Highbury Fields, adjacent to Highbury Grove. Central to this project is the development of new built facilities, to replace several existing poor quality buildings in need of replacement. Although this project is in its very early stages and we know that we will need to raise more money to achieve this scheme, we have begun the process of appointing an architect to develop a design for the improvements. Four architectural firms have been invited to submit a quotation for the project and we hope to make the appointment by mid-October 2017. A copy of the strategic design brief, which has been used to procure an architect, can be found the bottom of this page.
Four architectural practices will be submitting quotations to the Council in the next few weeks alongside their ideas and concepts for the project. These ideas and concepts will be available for public view on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 20th September between 11am and 8.30pm at Highbury Baptist Church and we would like to hear your views. Please drop in at any point during these hours to tell us what you think of the ideas on display and to vote for your favourite architect. Your votes will help us to make the appointment.
Please note that the ideas on display are by no means finalised plans for this project. This purpose of this stage of the project is to choose an architect, not a design. Any ideas are simply concepts at this stage. An actual design for the improvements will be subject to extensive consultation once a design team has been appointed.
