Work to transform abandoned shops in Millburn Housing Estate has been delayed due to the electrics not being safe enough to allow for handover to Millburn Community Association.
A spokesperson for the Community Association, who plan to transform the shops into a Community Cafe and Training Centre said : “We recently informed the community on here about our association taking over the shops next door.
“There has been a slight delay which has worked in our favour as the electrics were not safe enough for handover so the shop needs to be rewired before we can take ownership of the keys”
“So therefore a delay of 3-4 weeks before we can start our work to transform that space into a community cafe and training centre with a beauty room.”
“Because of this delay the painting and decorating course which has been given the go head can only start once we are in the property.”
“This is very exciting times for our community as we will be regenerating the Millburn area for our residents.”
