Tennis club and car park

The new tennis club, pavilion and car park at Riverside are due to be completed by the end of March 2015.

Main development

We need to acquire some key parts of the East Street site which remain outside Waverley's control before other work can begin.

Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)

Having made the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), this has now been confirmed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.  

View the Brightwells CPO - Inspector's report and letter, received 28 August 2013.
