Bellsmyre Housing Association believes that an increasing part of its role is to help improve not only the houses that we own but also the Bellsmyre area as a whole both enviromentally and in terms of the facilities and opportunities for our residents.
Big Lottery Our Place Fund
We are actively involved in the process aimed at securing some £1.5 million of lottery funding for the area.
The Association's Committee and staff, together with the Advice Centre Co-ordinator, Renzo Cardozi, have been instrumental in the creation of the Bellsmyre Development Trust which will administer the Big Lottery funding.
Proposals for the regeneration of Bellsmyre include the acquisition and refurbishment of the Howatshaws Hall, the introduction of a Community Cinema , the creation of up to 5 new community development jobs as well as ensuring that a number of smaller community led ideas become a reality.
The staff team will be responsible for the creation of a programme of services and activities for all age groups within Bellsmyre.
