End of the Road for School Project

The project to convert the derelict former Cumbernauld Primary School building in Cumbernauld Village into a Community and Heritage Hub has come to a disappointing end.

Fundraise for the trust…by doing nothing new…

Obviously the school campaign is going to mean a significant amount of funding is going to be needed to pay for it.  We are going to be kicking off a series of work based around community fundraising and getting more in for the people of Cumbernauld. A lot of major funders require some form of … Continue reading

Very rough options

So we’ve been given a couple of the rough drafts of the possible shape of the new building and wanted to share these with you to get your opinions. These drafts were for the option 2 proposal which was shown on the night of the consultation. The main differences from Option 1 are the additional … Continue reading

Public Consulation

A fantastic turn out last night at our Public Consultation.  We leafleted the village (thanks to CVAC for putting the effort in there) and advertised online. Phiilip Morgan-Klein (Chair of CVAC) chaired the meeting for the group and went through the background to the project and what our aims were.  Following on from that Jura (our business … Continue reading
