We are delighted to announce that 491 days after we initially submitted it, today planning permission was granted for our proposed works to bring the disused and derelict site of the former Eco House.
None of this would have been possible without the incredible fundraising efforts of our community over the last five years. It is their desire to keep this piece of land in community hands that has kept us driving towards this milestone, especially during the crowdfund of late 2019/early 2020 where we were able to specifically finance the architects and surveys needed to submit planning.
This is a huge step towards bringing the site back to life and into use by our community and beyond. Now the challenge of raising the capital finance needed to complete the works begins!
