Recently, we held our first community conversation ahead of the redevelopment of our iconic Centre here in Camden.

Over 100 people attended the event to give their ideas and aspirations for the future of the Centre. Coffey Architects, who won our architecture competition to head the development, were also there on the night.

Sean Kennedy, CEO, welcomed service users and volunteers alike. “We want to hear and get feedback from you. What you would like to see a redeveloped London Irish Centre look like and what the London Irish Centre means to you as stakeholders here”.

“What we want to do is reimagine, redevelop and reposition the London Irish Centre as a world-class community cultural centre”.

Key areas that will be looked at as part of the redevelopment process are:

  • The poor layout of the building
  • There is currently no full disabled access
  • The building is not energy efficient
  • Multiple entrances and exits have led to increasing security issues
  • The Centre has poor infrastructure, with sound and IT equipment in need of improvements

Following the event, we launched our new project website, www.licfuture.org, where you will find all the information you need on the redevelopment plans and how you can get involved. We want as many service users and volunteers as possible to have their say and join the conversation.

If you were not able to attend the community conversation, please visit www.licfuture.org to take part in our survey before it closes on Friday, August 16h.
