We are pleased to note that during our attendance at the local authority’s committee meeting last night, 21st May, the Park Life Community Hub proposal was given unanimous and vocal support by committee members and councillors and granted Planning Permission. The client team was well represented and the chair of the trustees spoke clearly and persuasively, clarifying queries from the panel. A short debate was had but the overall feeling in the room was one of whole-hearted support. There was overall agreement that this type of project showed great community initiative and focus, demonstrating a clear and worthy intent; councillors in other wards even wondered if they ‘could have one of these please’. So Planning Permission has been granted and the next major step is to secure all the funding required to deliver the building. We look forward to helping in any way we can and in due course picking up the reins to attend to detailed technical design and the process towards construction. Congratulations to the project team, in their hard work and persistence. The Planning decision was covered in the local press here.
