Today we received some great news. HIE have offered us a grant for 50% of the next stage of developemnt.
If you recall, last year we had a feasility study carried out into the viability of Business Starter Units in North Harris. The next stage is to get the Architect to draw up more formal plans and tighten up the costs for the project. We have now instructed AffordableTM, the architects to start work on this. Over the next few months, they will prepare the planning application for two units on the site at Urgha.
In the mean-time, with the demise of the Old Hostel building fast approaching, we have had a number of enquiries about the units. Unfortunately we can’t meet the October demolition deadline – but it is encouraging to know there is interest in our little project.
