Presented at this year’s AGM, the Society is using the Alex Bruce Legacy to fund five (educational permanent A1 external) information boards featuring the history and construction of the Estate. Four of the boards will be mounted on the railings outside the Gardens and one free-standing, near the cottages on the Esplanade. The designs include images of the builders and the processes and products of their work. Also featured, some of the many artists and amazing people who have lived here.
At September’s Conservation Advisory Group meeting, there was unanimous approval for the project, prior to it going before the Council Planning Committee. The 8-week period for applications to be considered is up in early October. Our Planning application BH2019/02220 can be viewed on the BHCC website and we expect the result next month. We shall be keeping members informed of the progress and details of the launch in 2020.
