The “feasibility study” has never been conducted.

Dudley council has identified a saving of £120k p.a. to be realised by the closure of Broadfield House. This figure does not account for the running cost of the new site.

The figures do not include the huge one off cost of moving and storage; there has been no study to determine the cost of refitting the new site and certainly no costed plan for an expanded facility.

There has been no feasibility study, there is no future plan and implementing the closure now of a going concern will probably cost money. Dudley Council needs to see an accountant and a business planner.

Hi Adam,
That's great; you could put a distribution list together and have it downloadable from your website.
Graham

I have now prepared an excel file with the 69 email addresses of all the Dudley councillors. I can email it to anyone who would like a copy, either in excel or as text.  Email me for this here http://www.adamaaronson.com/display.php?navID=35

as I haven't yet worked out how to upload it to my website  ;D

I have managed to add a page http://www.adamaaronson.com/adam.php?showExhibition=240&navID=17&subID= and you mind find the last paragraph illuminating....

Nigel, as you can see from the link, we'd be more than happy to have a copy of the paper petition for people to sign. As I think we have about 40 people coming to the private view on Wednesday http://www.zestgallery.com/exhibitions.php?showExhibition=29  it would be good to have this in time for that.

After clicking on the above links you may find you need to scroll down a bit, depending on your browser. Apologies.

I've asked Roger for photos, and he will be sending them to me. I will forward them to whoever wants them. However, at some stage I will visit Broadfield House and take a few interior shots, so that people will fully grasp exactly what they are missing – to anyone who has never been there before, it really is an awe-inspiring place!
