Update on community centre at former St. Peter’s / Rainsford school

Phone calls, emails and meetings about the future of this site pop up almost every week. Last Friday was the latest meeting of the steering group that I first convened in Summer 2012. We received a presentation about the different legal options for creating a community association / trust / company to take the project forwards.

On this topic, Cllr Jude Deakin and I have had other meetings with the Chief Executive and Director of Finance at Chelmsford City Council; various conversations and emails with the Council's Policy Officer, who is helping us draw up a business plan, and correspondence with local groups who want to be involved.

I have also made comments on the draft business plan; looked for input from other groups, and been in touch with the Federation of Small Businesses. We first need Essex County Council Education department to decide whether it needs any of the site before we know what might be available for the community.

If you want to be involved in the development of this community project, just let me know.
