Fleetwood Community Hub

Project Title: Fleetwood Community Hub
Services: Employer’s Agent
Client: The Fleetwood Trust
Build Value: TBC
Build Duration: TBC

Shelby is undertaking an Employer’s Agent role on the redevelopment of Fleetwood Hospital into a community hub.

Fleetwood is a coastal town in Lancashire. The Fleetwood Trust, a registered charity, purchased Fleetwood Hospital, a building which lay largely unused for more than a decade. The Trust's objective is to provide a much-need facility for the local community.

The Pantry, which is the new home of Fleetwood Foodbank, became the first community service officially opened at Fleetwood Hospital in October 2020. A nationally accredited volunteer centre is now also operating from the building.

Future proposed tenants include a regional housing and maintenance group, charity partners, higher education and health and well-being training providers.

The trust’s vision is also to have the following facilities open for the local community:

  • Café and teaching kitchen
  • Co-working spaces
  • Multi-purpose studios
  • Meeting rooms and offices
  • Educational and training facilities
  • Garden
