Jericho Living Heritage Trust lines up for a bid
The Jericho Living Heritage Trust has been preparing plans, through architects, for a preferred scheme for the redevelopmment of the boatyard site. This is in anticipation of submitting a bid to the Communitybuilders fund, for £2 million to buy the site – should the administrators, PwC, be prepared to sell it. The funding bid has to be submitted by 30 November.
In the next few weeks there will be a series of meetings with local groups to consider the plans and to agree the best legal structure, organization and governance arrangements, for the acquisition, development and operation of the site.
To inform Jericho residents about these plans there will be a drop-in ‘communications event’ early in December, probably in St Barnabas Church, which will display models and plans and invite comments.
