Exciting plans for a ground-breaking new Place & Making Institute have received a significant boost, with the award of £100,000 of development support funding for the project by the Greater London Authority- writes bexley.gov.uk.
The funding will help London Borough of Bexley, Peabody and London South East College develop the proposal. It will be used to run a demand analysis exercise to further shape the concept, to develop the business case, to consider how delivery will be phased and prepare for the delivery of the new facilities that will form phase one of the scheme.
“I would like to thank the GLA for helping to support us in developing the proposal, which has the potential to benefit people across London and the south-east,” said Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, the Leader of the London Borough of Bexley. “The Institute will create all types of opportunities for people to shape the places of the future, with input from the worlds of construction, development, education, housing, planning and local government.”
