With a few more steps closer, we hope that we can move forward to the next stage very soon.
The facility would be constructed on land to the west of Brackley Leisure Centre, in Candleford Close.
Granting Brackley Town Council a lease on this land will enable it to bring forward a range of community facilities.Cllr Malcolm Longley, WNC Cabinet Member for Finance
I have no doubt that young people can’t wait for the development to be brought forward, and it’s a fantastic looking design with a range of elements to help blend it into the landscape.
It will also complement other nearby facilities like Brackley Leisure Centre and recreation ground, which is home to Brackley Athletic Football Club.
