Proposed Viewing Platform
Gelligaer Bowls Club


The Gelligaer Bowls Club is a long established club with its own rink, car park and clubhouse. Whilst the car park and clubhouse are on the same level the rink is set at a much lower level. Our brief was to design and obtain planning consent to construct a viewing platform level with the car park. The platform would enable spectators and in particular those spectators who were wheelchair bound to be able to sit or stand in comfort to what matches being played whilst not being situated in the car park area or being crowded adjacent to the rink side path.


Planning Consent was granted despite the fact that the site lies within an area designated as an “Ancient Garden”. Regrettably however the club were not able to secure sufficient grant funding for the project and so it did not proceed to construction.
