The Charleston Trust requires a loan of £120,000 from the SELEP GPF to create a café-restaurant in the Threshing Barn on the farmhouse’s estate. This work is part of a wider £7.6m multi-year scheme –the Centenary Project – which aims to transform the operations of the Charleston farmhouse museum.
Growing Places Fund
The Growing Places Fund (GPF) was established by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (formerly the Department for Communities and Local Government) and the Department for Transport (DfT) in 2011. The aim of this funding is to unlock economic growth, create jobs and ‘kick-start’ house building at stalled development sites.
Through the GPF Round 1 awards, a total of £48.705m GPF was awarded to 13 capital infrastructure projects across the LEP area.
