“City Council are just starting to produce a Supplementary Planning Document for the Jericho Boatyard site. We are moving quite rapidly with producing this which will set some design parameters for the development of the site. Such as what size and location of boatyard and community centre, location of housing, position of bridge, heights of buildings etc.”
We have booked the Jericho Community Centre on 10th July (3.30pm – 7.30pm) for an informal drop-in event for local people. We will have free tea and coffee as well as a charity cake sale.
You would be very welcome to come along and let us know what ideas you have.
Negotiations between Jericho Wharf Trusts (of which JCBY are one of the 4 groups) and the adminitators of the Castlemill site / HSBC (you possibly read in the local papers) restarted last christmas and continue……..
Matt Morton generously chaired the March AGM.
As 9 directors stood for 9 directors posts, a process swiftly brought Bruce, Hugh, Rufus and Sam to the board with previous directors Carole, Ed, Eli, Mark and Steve. The usual reports were received, followed by Stephanie’s presentation on the self build idea. Other discussions flowed, the last being DIY provision. Copious thanks were extended to Matt, then most caught up on each others’ lives at the Bear pub. Many thanks go to all those who continue to support JCBY’s aims which optimistically appear significantly nearer.
