Through the community website and the work of the Trust.
Each dwelling makes a small contribution as part of their annual estate management charge for this service, which has been set up initially on a five year agreement, but expected to be ongoing. ZeroC has also provided additional start-up funds for the first five years, allowing the initial residents contributions to be saved by the Manco in a reserve fund to be controlled and used by residents for community purposes after the original start up fund finishes.
It is planned that there will be a community cafe, retail space or a community room or a combination of these options in a building facing the green. ZeroC are exploring the best solution with both CDC and the Trust, and hope to create a community asset which will be valuable to all parties, especially the community in and around the development.
The RP Community Room would allow residents (and any local groups) of all ages and disability a space that is very close to where they actually live.
The CCDT is building a large community hall at Graylingwell, a short distance from Roussillon Park, as they have the space to do this.
