The pledges on Spacehive have almost all been collected and funds are in place to get started. A big thank to all those who donated.
Our bid to the Greater London Authority for the Good Growth Fund was, regretfully, not successful. We understand that the grant was massively over-subscribed.
Obviously, this is a setback to the project - but we know we have the resources to re-calibrate our position, and move forward with confidence while exploring new sources of funding.
Meanwhile we are focusing on the successes we have achieved so far and the wonderful support from we have from the community.
We have appointed a local solicitor to draw up our lease with Ealing Council. In addition, we have made positive progress with the application for planning permission and should have an update about this very soon.
