Project Details:

Wednesbury 2000 have applied for CIL funding to bring a local and historical building back into use. This will enable other local organisations to utilise the services and facilities that Wednesbury 2000 offer. By opening up this space it will give local individuals, businesses and organisations affordable space to deliver their services in Wednesbury Town Centre. This will contribute to our charity to be financially self-sufficient in the future as well as being able to support and connect with more local organisations which will make out outreach into the community stronger.

This will enable other floors of the building to have safe access to support development and usage in the future.

The funding from CIL is planned to be spent on repairing the fire exit stairwell from the ground floor to the first floor which will allow work to be completed on the first floor and this facility to be opened up for community use. Separate funding will be gained to repair the stairwell from the first to the second floor.

Amount of CIL funding requested £4,200.00.
