A Key Milestone now Passed
Persimmon Homes Ltd handed a set of keys to the trust on the 1 February to commence a six-month licence to enter the building to conduct a feasibility study.
This is a key milestone achievement as the Lichfield Waterworks Trust is now one step closer to achieving its plan to bring the redundant Grade II* building back into reuse as a community facility.
We now have regular working parties at the pumping station each Friday, who are doing some sterling work. The site is like a time capsule, so all of the artefacts are being carefully cleaned, photographed and catalogued.
The bid team are working hard to put together a grant application for a feasibility study.
The aim and objective of this study is to develop and produce a sustainable business plan to demonstrate that as a trust we are capable of managing this site in a business-like manner that clearly outlines how we will deliver an ongoing programme of funding, maintenance and renovation of the site. We will also outline how we will make it accessible, preserve the heritage and give benefit to the community in perpetuity.
