The press release issued by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on 17 January 2023.
£200,000 from the Community Ownership Fund has been awarded to the Wharf Community Hub in Marple.
The project will regenerate the Grade II listed building to create a local community hub.
The Wharf Warehouse
The Warehouse building has been a key part of the community since the early 1800s but is now in a poor state of repair.
Plans for the funding include renovating the building and creating a:
- health and wellbeing studio
- heritage centre
- canal side café
Benefits to the local community
The hub will provide a place for the community to come together and a chance for people to learn about Marple’s canal transport heritage.
