|Marple Wharf Warehouse|
The Civic Society continues to work to secure a community/heritage scheme for the Marple Wharf warehouse building. A team of nine, including 3 local councillors and a representative from Marple Local History Society, met with senior council officers and CRT/H2O urban last week to try to find a way to secure suitable space for a scheme in the warehouse.
CRT/H2O are keen to submit a planning application for 7 houses along the waterfront but we are pleased they have agreed to work with us further on the warehouse before submission of the planning application. Ideally, we would like to purchase the building or, as a minimum, take a peppercorn rent on the whole of the ground floor space.
We are preparing a Business Plan and are due to meet again on the 8th February 2017.
