When: June 2011 - ongoing

Location: 49 Tudor St, Burnley

Team: Michelle Emma James + Ammon Beyerle + Vignesh Prasad Chandrasekaran + Liling Kong

Partners: Richmond Community Learning Centre (Simone Gardner), Richmond Toy Library (Elizabeth Geddes + Susan Davies) and Richmond Community Garden Group (Patricia Pringle + Cath Stutterheim)

In June 2011, the City of Yarra called for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from local community groups who wished to use the property at 49 Tudor Street. Ten submissions were received in Stage One of this EOI process.

In August 2011, Council determined that two teams should proceed to Stage Two to develop feasibility studies for the site. Our team is a partnership between Richmond Community Learning Centre, here studio, Richmond Community Garden Group and Richmond Toy Library. (The other team is Cultivating Community).

The feasibility study was submitted to council on 27 April 2012 (see below). Council had a meeting on June 5 to determine the preferred use of the site before moving to Stage 3. The Council assessment panel's reviewed both proposals and recommended that:

_The proposals submitted by each party are considered viable and each is presented to Council with a reasonably high level of confidence in terms of practicability and achievability; and
_Council proceed to Stage Three of the EoI process with the consortium headed by
Richmond Community Learning Centre (here studio).

On 26 June 2012, Council resolved to proceed with our proposal. We are very excited and congratulate our partners and the community for all we have achieved over the past year!
