Sutherland Hussey Harris' Sessay Pavilion gets go-ahead

  • Comment

Sutherland Hussey Harris has won planning for its competition-winning community hub and sports pavilion in Sessay, North Yorkshire

The project – backed by the Sessay Parish Council and Village Hall and Playing Fields Association – will create a new community hall and pavilion for Sessay Cricket Club which won the National Village Knockout Tournament at Lords in 2010.

The scheme which will replace the existing building on the site, includes a bar and café, meeting rooms, a second cricket pitch, a double multi-use games area for tennis, football and other sports and an outdoor children’s adventure play area.

Newly rebranded Sutherland Hussey Harris won the RIBA-run contest under its old name Sutherland Hussey back in January, when it saw off competition from Faed Brown Architects, Daykin Marshall Studio and Gibson Thornley Architects.

Parish council chair John MacPherson, said: ‘We certainly bowled them over. The planning committee thought our plans ‘amazing’ and ‘fantastic’. Sessay is well-known regionallyfor its cricket and we hope to build facilities that will accommodate our sporting ambitions in the future and bring our community further rewards.’

Chair of the village hall and playing fields association, Guy Musgrave added: ‘With planning permission secured we feel we now have a clear vision. Ahead of us lies the challenging tasks of developing detailed plans and initiating a fundraising campaign to deliver the Hub Project and ultimately bring the dream of a community facility one step closer. We remain confident we can make it happen.’
