This is a good step forward Graham, and thanks to Barbara for the update.
I do think we need to be aware that until the feasibility study is done and the whole decision making process is complete and the collection safe either in BH or in a new location with enhanced facilities, that we aren't actually winners.
Dudley's Supplementary Planning Documents for the Glass Quarter are now online, the process takes time to resolve, but input into that planning process is essential if the outcome we all want to see is to be achieved. If no-one responds to the SPD or subsequent consultations then Dudley MBC will do as they please and we'll not be winners, so please do take the time to respond to any planning or other consultation documents issued by the council.
Dudley MBC now has the opportunity to use some imagination, be innovative, and, with the support of the glass community and politicians at UK and EU level, create a world-class museum and archive facility for the collection currently located at Broadfield House. Let's make sure that Dudley MBC know they have our support for such a facility. Onwards and upwards as the saying goes!
