Towards the end of 2015, Four Greens Community Trust approached Plymouth Energy Company, to explore putting a ground-mounted solar array on derelict land in Ernsettle.
By March 2016, hanks to the goodwill of the local community partners and Plymouth City Council, 16,000 solar panels were generating 4.1MW of clean renewable energy, enough to power 1000 homes a year.
One of the assets Four Greens Community Trust was keen to develop was the old university sports hall building in Ernesettle. FGCT was approached by local resident Bradley Yeo who agreed to take on the tenancy and contribute to the cost of renovation. In partnership, an indoor sports facility was created that specialises in futsal delivery. This facility is now used by many local football teams and there are exciting plans to develop the facility in the future.
On the old Plymouth University Sport Grounds in Ernesettle, thanks to the dedication of Dave Shears a nationally recognised Moto Cross facility that provides unique opportunities for young people to experience this exhilarating sport. There are plans to diversify the usage of the facility to include potential buggy racing and possible BMX usage.
FGCT is delighted to have B & H Scaffolding as one of its tenants. B & H offer a complete scaffolding package, from domestic and commercial scaffolding to design and installation. They also offer a full Bricklaying Service for commercial projects.
