Ballycanew Ballyoughter Community Development Association RESOURCE CENTRE UPDATE

Ballycanew Resource Centre update 27/06/19:

Ballycanew Resource Centre

As many of you are aware, the Development Association signed the lease on the old BCM Safety Building in the Centre of the Village.  Today we have applied for and obtained planning permission for a change of use, to turn the building into a community Centre.

To date the following items have been put in place:

  • Planning Permission Obtained (April 2019)
  • Fire and Wheelchair Certs applied for (April 2019)
  • Architectect employed
  • Open Evening for Groups in the Area
  • Commencement of Works (May 2019)

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond the Associations control, we had to make major changes.  This has had an impact of the timeframe we had hoped to attain, but we are now in the position, to announce that we are hopeful that we can now open the doors in the next few weeks.

We look forward to welcoming you once the building work has been completed, and hope to count on your support, for the operation and continued improvements to the Resource Centre.

Based on our current estimates, we would hope to have the facility open in August 2019.
