HCGC gets planning

Here are a few images from the hybrid planning application that we submitted on behalf of Hulme Community Garden Centre. We have just found out that the application has been successful, which is great news. The application included change of use of the existing site, full planning permission for a hot and a cold poly tunnel, a covered store and a secure lock up unit. Outline permission was sort for a new shop, a new workshop and a cob office.

Plans are already underway to install a perimeter fence to secure the site and the Garden Centre are actively looking to source materials for the extension.
