Opportunity to get involved with the new Grow Banff @ the Vinery project

Aberdeenshire Council are looking for a social enterprise, charity, business or partnership who will work with them and the community to fulfil the potential of a derelict, listed Vinery building in Banff to make a real difference to people’s lives. A community consultation was carried out to identify possible uses for this Grade B listed Glass House. It identified the preferred use for a restored building as a “Community garden and Horticultural Skills base” which was closely followed in votes by a “Community Kitchen and Café”, and it is hoped it could be possible to accommodate both in the site designs. The buildings sit within a landscaped walled garden of 0.8 hectares which once formed part of the policies of the Historic Environment Scotland property, Duff House. Currently under-used this project also offers huge scope to re-invigorate this garden space as a place for the community and an attraction for tourists.

Further information can be found in the press release and the call for operators.

Expressions of interest should be submitted to suzanne.rhind@aberdeenshire.gov.uk by 16 August.
