A new leisure, enterprise and education centre has been approved for the Five Acres site in Berry Hill, Coleford, delivered alongside consultants Pick Everard. 

Classrooms at an existing educational building will be repurposed to create office and community spaces, alongside a cafe and outreach space for Hartpury University’s Aspiration Centre.  

A new multi-purpose four-court sports hall, performance space, party rooms/dressing rooms and internal changing rooms will also be built.  

A new car park will be constructed.  

Pick Everard will provide project management, cost management, health & safety, and sustainability consultancy services. 

Works will commence after the Easter holidays.  

“This is a significant milestone in a journey to bring a host of benefits to the community of Berry Hill and further afield,” said Guy Rossiter, principal project manager at Pick Everard.  

“It is a fully encompassing project, that reflects a shift in the way we view and design our local hubs – bringing, leisure, education and business opportunities all under one roof, helping drive future prosperity from one generation to the next.  

“With planning approved, we look forward to the next phase of this development, collaborating closely with the project team and the council to bring its vision to fruition.”
