There’s a new initiative in the making called The Place Station that is supporting the re development of the Longford Essoldo Cinema building in Stretford for community use. Check it out here.

The Place Station introduces owners of land and buildings across the UK to social and community entrepreneurs with ideas for transforming their local area – providing a space where people can:

  • Search for land and buildings
  • Add a Place they’d like to see owned and managed by the community
  • Add an Idea for transforming local services
  • Propose new uses for available land and buildings
  • Comment on and offer to support an Idea or Proposal for a Place
  • Find pro-bono supporters where they live to put their Ideas and Proposals into practice.
