Will Mangera Yvars' Harrow community centre overcome the cultural divide?

Comment

Nice to know where it is, so one can take a look at the site and work completed so far. Is it too big for the location? From the section it looks to be lower than the surrounding houses, and finished with white render, to match. Looks like there will be sports and social facilities, and presumably useable by local residents. The area is a sea of small houses, so a building of note will elevate this street above the ordinary. Hopefully parking has been catered for, which stresses those same residents. The elevations and plans owe something to Zaha? Let's hope they can raise the rest of the finance to complete the build. Shame on any reader of the AJ who adopts a nimby attitude based on a different cultural/religious background, but they are everywhere. Worse even than the usual untrained planning officers?!
