The momentum builds


By brian.cope - Posted on 16 February 2011

First, the headline news - we have formally received Building Control approval - the design is acceptable to the local authority so we can proceed to construction.  Hooray!

We're finally in the process of making the last few arrangements to start building - getting approval of the facing materials to discharge our planning condition, completing the necessary forms for risk management, Health & Safety Executive notification etc.

We've had some really helpful discussions with our building contractor to sort out who is doing what towards actually starting.  The momentum is building...getting quite exciting now.

Next step - Sea Scouts Group Executive meeting next week and then further detailed discussions about various aspects of the contruction phase.  Meanwhile, the fundraising team are driving through a number of great ideas to help raise the remainder of the money we need.

If you want to contribute to the project in any way (money, materials, any other support), now would be a great time to get in touch!
