Axminster Football Club
We have been working in conjunction with Devonshire Homes regarding Axminster Town AFC’s new facilities and regeneration of their existing ground at Sector Lane. Devonshire Homes proposes to relocate the club to a new home on land adjacent to the sports ground at Cloakham Lawns.
The proposals would see the club provided with a new first-team pitch and supporter stands; a further full-size pitch together with a junior pitch; a 3rd generation all-weather training pitch and supporting facilities for the club in the shape of office space, changing rooms and a new clubhouse. Sector Lane will be fully redeveloped and become a site for high-quality new housing.
John Grimes Partnership provided advice for the foundations of the new clubhouse and geotechnical advice for the site of the new football pitch. Furthermore, we carried out soakaway tests, ground investigations and a Phase I Environmental Desktop Report for both sites.
