the Shed Project

There is an immediate aim to address capital funding for the refurbishment of the Outbuilding in Spylaw Park.

 

Our vision for the Community Hub project is to: 

 

  • Transfer the building into community ownership
     

  • Renovate, refurbish, and preserve this historic local building
     

  • Deliver a multi-functional and welcoming drop-in space to provide a daily sense of community 
     

  • Provide a community meeting place for local organisations to utilise and work collaboratively with others in Colinton and beyond 
     

  • Create a Community Heritage Hub to serve Colinton community and its visitors with facilities for social interaction, cultural exchange, and creative activities.

All the above will support an inclusive community space which will reduce social isolation. 

By developing The Hub in this way, the group proposes to preserve the building, currently underused and at risk of gradual decay. 

The total project cost is likely to be in the region of £500,000. 

CVE SCIO has already received financial support from the Scottish Land Fund, for development and acquisition funding, allowing us to successfully navigate through the Community Asset Transfer procedures to acquire ownership from the City of Edinburgh Council.  

We have also received grants from other bodies. But we need your help to realise our goals and the building’s true potential.
