The Trustees of Birkdale Community Hub & Library (BCH&L) will be meeting with the architect, a structural engineer and representatives from Merseyrail this coming Thursday. We will discuss the draft plans drawn up by the architect and agreed in principal by BCH&L Trustees. We are hopeful that this meeting will allow the project to move forward onto the next stage. This will involve acquiring quotes from contractors, fundraising and applying for grants to fund this exciting project.
Due to storm Doris and the disruption to train services the site meeting was postponed until Wednesday 1st March. All went well with discussions. As Merseyrail lease the property from Network Rail the Merseyrail representatives will now discuss the plans with Network Rail. However, Merseyrail did not perceive that there would be a problem in carrying out the alterations required. So, in view of this BCH&L are now going to commence with fundraising plans and grant applications to raise the finance required.
