Working with design collective Assemble, a report has now been produced, outlining a set of options for how the Council can improve the site for the benefit of all residents.
Everyone with an interest in Vestry House is invited to review and comment on the options at an online Public Consultation meeting on Thursday 16 February 2023 at 6.30pm.
All those registering for this event will receive a link to the Assemble report and an online feedback form prior to the consultation event.
