In the last few weeks, thanks to the support of local people, this campaign has attracted lots of attention and opinion. In turn, our local MSPs have been talking to RI about the possibilities for the future of the sheds, representing the views and comments the community have made. This week, the Chief Executive and Operations Manager of Riverside Inverclyde have also agreed to talk to members of the group about the suggestions that have been made and the possibility of further community use of the space. We were also really pleased this week to read this piece in The Scotsman, from Joan McAlpine MSP.
Brilliant. And thank you.
As things have continued to move on, we felt it was important to be clear about what we hope to achieve with this campaign. What we might all hope to achieve with the building itself is really the next step...
To explore an alternative development strategy for regeneration of the Sugar Sheds in order to provide the maximum community benefit for the people of Inverclyde.
1. To work collaboratively with Riverside Inverclyde and all key stakeholders- including the local community- to explore alternative uses for the Sugar Sheds beyond the current outline planning permission.
So, thank you very much for your support, interest and suggestions so far, please keep sharing the facebook page and signing the petition. This will be a long haul. I hope you'll stick with us. There's plenty more to come.
