Cambridge city councillors are set to approve the allocation of £255,000 towards a major refurbishment of a community centre.

East Barnwell Community Centre on Newmarket Road, which is owned by Cambridgeshire County Council, is being redeveloped in a project costing £1.8m in total.

When complete the new centre will provide improved community facilities, including additional space for local young people to use, enhanced pre-school childcare facilities, a library, a kitchen area with café seating, and offices.

The city council’s East Area Committee is set to approve the £255k funding, which will be paid for by developer contributions, at its meeting on Thursday 11 September.

Cllr Kevin Blencowe, Chair of the East Area Committee, said: “We are pleased at the prospect of allocating these funds from developers to such a worthwhile project.

“East Barnwell Community Centre has been a vital resource for many groups in that part of Cambridge, and its refurbishment will provide even better facilities for the community for years to come.”
