Heart of Newhaven: latest update

HoN says

HoNC continues to work towards acquisition of the Victoria Primary School site and despite the impact of Covid 19, our timetable for completion remains the same: as soon as the children move to their new school, we will move in, hopefully in the autumn of next year, 2021.

To acquire the building, which we have permission from City of Edinburgh Council to purchase, we need to find £700,000.  To this end, an application to the Scottish Land Fund has already been submitted. With the current SLF funds geared towards applications with more immediate needs, particularly those who have Covid-related issues, we have decided to pause our application until the next round of grants which will bring it more in line with our expected purchase date.

Heart of Newhaven’s application to save Victoria Primary School buildings for the community has been ‘validated’. This means the HoN have demonstrated such a high level of community support and need that it has legally qualified for Community Asset Transfer consideration.
