Raise the Roof Progress Bulletin

9 months ago By Charlotte Clynch

Planning Application has been submitted, more details on the project's progress is below ...

The committee, with the help of our Architects, have in the past week fully submitted the projects plans to the planning authority. It will now take a number of weeks of awaiting for a decision/outcome to be given, to see whether or not planning permission is granted.

In the meantime, all information on the project, are available via the Wirral Council’s planning portal :-

So keep an eye out for regular updates on the project and planning progress.

In other forms of an update, the committee would like to inform members of the other steps which have been put in place over the past few month to assist in the project.

We have also been looking into numerous external funding opportunities, with the help and advice of Heather Akehurst. A number of different opportunities have been identified, and we are currently beginning the process of bidding. In doing this, we have also been carefully considering the future opportunities for the Club to expand sporting opportunities on offer, as well as the positive impact the new facilities will have on the local community. All of these ideas, can been seen within our new community strategy document.

As well as this, we have also ran a number of already successful fundraising events internally, allowing us to raise circa. of £20,000. We would like to thank all members for their continuing support.
