Fisher & Associates were appointed in 2017 to obtain Planning Consent for a new first floor extension to the eastern elevation of the existing building. The extension was designed to include both restaurant seating/gallery, dance studio and lift access. Despite obtaining Planning consent we were unsuccessful in an Arts Councils bid for funding.
Despite this Weymouth and Portland Borough Council have granted £250k for refurbishment works which have commenced this fall, although the works do not include the extension this does include roofing, windows and external decoration to try and bring the building back to its former glory. We hope for the works to completed early 2019.
The community involved company is seeking to progress funding in the second phase in 2019.
