The Fraser Centre Community Trust is delighted to confirm that planning permission for our project to rebuild our venue has been granted, subject to conditions, by East Lothian Council.
The Trust aim to rebuild the former picture house into a modern community hub for learning, development, arts & entertainment in the heart of the Tranent community.
Chairman Jonny Russell said: “We are delighted that planning has been granted which takes us closer to achieving our vision for the centre and our community.
On behalf of all at the Trust I would like to thank our design team NORR for working with us to reach this stage and creating an exciting vision of the future for the Fraser Centre and Tranent”.
Development Manager David Orr said: “We have a critical period of fundraising coming up now to raise the funds before we can begin any work with the project costing an estimated £2,384,000. If you want to get involved please visit www.friendsofthefrasercentre.com and find out how you can help or what fundraising initiatives we have going on that you can get involved with.
This is a massive step forward for the capital project and an exciting time for the Trust and the community.
The project will embrace the history of the old building by continuing to screen a community cinema programme, however the new facility will offer much more to the community with a variety of social, health, educational and business opportunities in the new hub”.
