Good news - Church change of use agreed

To create StJohns Place we need approval from the Church of England as well as the local planning authority.

Last Thursday there was a meeting at Church House in Westminster of the Church Closure and Re-use Committee to consider our case. They heard the very reasonable concerns of local residents about parking and noise and hours of use, and said that they felt that we could work these details out locally, and they were happy for the plans to go ahead.

It was a good reminder that as well as the building project we need to be working on how St.Johns Place will operate on a day to day basis, and making sure that everyone is involved in the discussions.

There's lots to be done in the next 12 months but we have now completed another hurdle and got one step closer to saving this building and making a great space for the whole community.

Thanks for all your support and involvement
And especial thanks to Ivy Picton - whose bric-a-brac sale in St.Johns last weekend raised £130.35.
