27 March 2018

We are delighted to have had the planning application approved for the redevelopment of the Grange Pavilion as the next step in making it a long-lasting community-led facility.

Following the fantastic news last month of funding grants from the Big Lottery Fund, the Garfield Weston Foundation, Cardiff Bay Rotary Club, and Adsa, we are still fundraising towards our full capital development budget before the final stages of design development and construction can begin. There's still plenty of input needed from the current and future users of the Pavilion as we finalise the design layouts to make sure we're planning for all imagined uses of the facility in making it a welcoming and flexible space for all, so please do get in touch or keep an eye out for calls for you to join us for detailed design workshops.

Huge thanks again to our fantastic design team of IBI Group, Dan Benham Architect, Mott MacDonald, Mann Williams, Holloway Partnership, The Urbanists, CDF Planning; to our the core partnership of the Grange Pavilion Project, Grangetown Community Action, and Cardiff University; and to the many other individuals and organisations who are helping to make this a reality.
