Pavilion News

The roofing and cladding contractor has decided to withdraw from the contract.  This is seen as a breach of contract and legal advice is being sought.  HPC will act on this and other legal advice received accordingly.  This withdrawal has meant that discussions are currently in progress with a further replacement contractor with a view to being able to start as soon as possible.  The current situation is very fluid and all parties are working to secure a contract with immediate effect.

We have been a given a date for the end of May to complete the build following detailed discussions with the Football Foundation. The Foundation has been very supportive and understanding as regards the difficulties experienced.  We will update the Foundation in the near future as soon as we are in a position to confirm the contract and program plan.  All parties are working to the same end and HPC will be seeking continued support from all stakeholders.

We appreciate how frustrating this is for residents and are feeling the same frustrations at HPC. We would like to get the playing field, Pavilion and Church Street open as soon as possible and are doing are upmost to make this happen.
