Civic Quarter

The Civic Quarter site sits to the south of Farnborough town centre. The RDP has identified it as an opportunity to develop a new heart for the town. 

The RDP’s vision is for a vibrant mixed-use space providing new opportunities for town centre living alongside active ground floor uses, such as cafes and restaurants, the leisure centre, library and community centre focused around an improved central green space.

Civic Quarter - the site today

The Civic Quarter is home to Farnborough Leisure Centre, Farnborough library, Westmead House (offices), Elles Hall, a skate park, surface car parks and a public green space. It is also the site of the now-demolished police station. 

Civic Quarter - initial thoughts

We are at a very early stage of creating redevelopment proposals for the Civic Quarter site, and will be seeking the views of local people and key stakeholders before moving forward with any plans. 

The initial proposals are likely to include:

  • Leisure Centre 
  • Residential
  • Hotel
  • Commercial – offices
  • Restaurant and cafes
  • Shops
  • Food store
  • Health facilities
  • Flexible community space
  • Skatepark
  • Library 

Civic Quarter - engagement

We are currently organising our first engagement event. We will send more information and invitations to local residents, and all will be welcome to give their feedback on our proposals.
