Broomfield House receives £500k from Boris

Published Wednesday, 25 November 2009

Transformation of Broomfield House takes another step forward.

This week the transformation of Broomfield House took another step forward, as the Mayor of London's office confirmed that £500,000 was to be made available for preparatory and public consultation work.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said he was 'committed to the success' of the Broomfield House Project, which currently looks to turn the House and part of the stable block into sheltered housing, and this is why he has made this money available from April 2010.

He has also said that the rest of the £5,970,000 million required will be made available in the next investment round starting in 2011/2012.

Cllr Matthew Laban, Cabinet Member for Housing said "Broomfield House has spent so many years derelict and a blight on Broomfield Park , so it is with the greatest pleasure that we receive this money to start work on transforming it into a useful community resource.

"Once we receive this first £500,000 we can start turning round this once beautiful building for the good of the whole community."
