Thank you very much for the excellent Estates meeting on 21.07.2021.
The presentation by the architects was illuminating and gave us clear alternatives. I thought they were well thought out and now need to elaborated on.
One thing that could be added is the construction of a basement in the West Wing which could provide storage as well as kitchens which was a positive part of the old West Wing project proposal.
I much prefer the comprehensive alternatives for all three wings provided we can raise sufficient monies which I referred to in my previous email after the Horizon presentation online meeting of 12.07.2021.

Thank you for your message and I’m glad you enjoyed the presentation. I’m keen to hear the views of members such as yourself to make sure these plans, as they develop, take into account a wide range of thoughts of opinions. We certainly want to maximise the existing space that we have – for example a lot of basement space would be freed up in the East Wing by the relocation of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment. It’s also helpful to know you are in favour of the comprehensive alternatives for all three wings.
