Service Centre

The service centre is to include a truck stop and convenience retail for motorists passing through – and for the benefit of the local community. The service centre will have its own vehicle entry and exit, with trucks being separated from private motor vehicles.

Community Gardens & Market Kitchen

The Grounds is a parcel of land set aside for community use, not too dissimilar to the allotments found in the UK. The purpose of The Grounds is two-fold – firstly, to provide healthy, fresh and local produce for the community and secondly, to provide a community-owned commercial operation providing jobs and income for community projects and services.

Production Park

Production Park is another opportunity for a community-led commercial operation. While ‘The Grounds’ is more focussed on produce, ‘Production Park’ will have more of a hands-off focus with multiple potential enterprises such as beekeeping, orchards and growing of seedlings for firewood and alternative opportunities.
