Working alongside Bath Cricket Club, Gilltown have brought forward proposals for a replacement cricket practice facility and student accommodation to be built over a repurposed car park. The development will provide the Cricket Club with a modernised car park, ECB and Sport England compliant facilities and a gymnasium. The student accommodation looks set to be secured by the University of Bath and will feature en-suite cluster bedrooms and double occupancy studios, many of which have fantastic views across the pitch.
Planning consent for this 135-bed development and cricket school was granted in March 2018.
Construction will commence in early 2019 for a summer 2020 completion.
