SCC has confirmed It has been working to a planned survey schedule, which is ongoing. The council continues to work closely with the Friends of Graves Park, meeting and communicating regularly, providing access to the building to allow them to conduct their own independent surveys and openly sharing all survey data, which is available on our website. A further meeting is planned for mid-January to discuss the findings of all the surveys. These will inform the most appropriate options for the building’s long-term future, allowing us to progress further for funding opportunities and public consultation.

Reopening…
The council has put in extensive propping works throughout and have been working with the current operator, Brewkitchen, to assess whether they can work from the building when safe to do so. There are some pending survey results, which are expected this week, that will inform the likely timescale. Results to date are looking very positive and a possible reopening date will be clearer by the end of the week.
