Built community infrastructure
A site for the built infrastructure has been prepared and serviced in the space between Culbokie Green and the affordable housing. The first phase of the development will comprise:
A public toilet along with a ‘potting shed’ – a small base for volunteers helping to care for the Green and to store tools and equipment
Further phases include:
A community café with indoor and outdoor seating areas, car and cycle parking and an EV charge point. The café will double as a meeting space and events venue. This will be a partnership venture where the day to day running of the café will be leased to a café manager (maybe another charity or an individual) and the building will be available for a programme of community activities and general community use when the café isn’t open
‘The Space’ – a flexible building which will focus on community and business uses such as business rental, hot desking, digital meetings and health treatment rooms. A community and stakeholder consultation about this phase was competed in late 2022 (Summary of result). A Business Plan was completed in 2023. Work towards full planning consent and a building warrant began in November 2023.
