Next Steps

We are in contact with the owners, made an offer, provided further information on our proposal and offered discussions on how we can move forward.

Meanwhile the building continues to deteriorate and in our view is not being sufficiently protected. We are in discussions with the local authority to assess the deterioration which has taken place since the listing, how it can be put right and what action will be taken to protect this local asset.

Historic England provide plenty of advice on looking after heritage buildings and managing Vacant Historic Buildings is particularly pertinent.

We continue to engage with the planning department and Historic England. They have seen our proposals which they support. 

Our proposals can bring this building back to life and bring massive investment and jobs to Harborne.

We engaging with our Councillors, MP and local groups to ensure they are aware of the options and can contribute their views and suggestions as the process develops.

We are now an unincorporated not for profit organisation and have developed an appropriate Articles of Association governing document for the Harborne Royalty Trust to apply for future charitable status.
