The Friends of Castle Green (FOCG)CIC occupy
the property at Castle Green Hereford under a lease dated 21 June
FOCG have been awarded funding from the government’s Stronger Town’s levelling up investment programme for a major refurbishment and extension of the building and as required under the terms of the lease have requested landlords consent to carry out these works.
The aim of the project is to transform the historic Pavilion building by respecting its Georgian heritage whilst creating a modern, accessible space and iconic riverside visitor attraction in the heart of Hereford including the provision of café facilities, a multifunctional and flexible community meeting space, a gallery celebrating local arts and heritage and a revitalised home for the Hereford Youth Canoe Club (HYCC).
The lease provides that consent must not be unreasonably withheld and there is no good reason in this case to do so as the proposals are intended to enhance and protect this historic building.
The consent will be subject to obtaining any necessary planning, listed building, conservation, scheduled ancient monument and building regulation consents and the tenant will be required to carry out the works to the highest standards to ensure that this important local building is protected and enhanced for future generations
