2012: Civic Trust Award Community Recognition Award
Terence O’Rourke provided architectural, landscape and planning services to secure planning consent for new and refurbished accommodation for Crewe YMCA. This provided 55 bed spaces in both re-modelled and new accommodation to replace existing accommodation deemed to be ‘not fit for purpose’ based on current standards. Extensive consultation with existing residents, Neighbourhood Action members, local residents and businesses and local members was undertaken to inform them about the proposals.
The approved scheme, which has now been completed, provides a mix of types of units to suit the needs of different types of residents together with other ancillary facilities such as an IT / learning suite, gym and staff offices. It provides an invaluable resource for the young people of the area and has proved extremely popular.
Following its completion at the end of 2010, the project received a Civic Trust Award in 2012 for its contribution to the local community.
