We have kept the community, our Councillors and the Council itself in touch with the emerging plan set out in New Life for the Heart of Portobello, our proposal.
What happens next is for the Council to decide. We know that our long-term goal of asset transfer is already happening in the City but usually in relation to a building with an existing body actively using it. There is not a such body for Portobello Town Hall and that will have to be created. Some of the uses that people have talked about require notice and planning, for example weddings.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves – what we have proposed is possible, now we have to make it probable, if the Council agrees.
