About Us

The Main Place has been achieved by Partnership working between Gloucestershire County Council, Forest of Dean District Council, The South West Region Development Agency all brought together by “Time for Coleford”, the strategic plan delivered by the Coleford Area Market and Coastal Towns Initiative Partnership, following a great deal of public consultation.

The building replaces the Coleford Youth and Community Centre in Bank Street that had been built in 1968 and was in a sad state of repair.  As a direct result of this £2.5million project, Coleford now has premises fit for the 21st Century and the old site is to be redeveloped to provide a mix of housing and some economic benefit, filling a local need.
