We are pleased to be able to notify our members that we have been successful in purchasing the Armstrong Garages off Seaforth Lane, Findhorn. A small amount of work is being completed to ensure they are in serviceable order before we begin renting them out very shortly.
Please get applications in by Sunday 11th February for allocation of the first group of garages, which will be available for occupation soon. The allocation (and draw from a hat if over subscribed) of places will take place on Wednesday 14th February.
Details of the the lettings policy, lease, plans of the site and other relevant information are now available via the following links:
Price: Initial prices will be £50/month for a garage and £25/month for a parking space.
We would suggest that if you are interested you complete the application form and return it to us at Findhorn Village Centre. Church Place. The applications will then be passed to the Secretary of TFVCC who will, with the help of other board members, contact the successful applicants and set a date for occupation.
The majority of the funding came from the Scottish Land Fund, however although some members gave very generously TFVCC had to meet a shortfall. This has been covered by a commercial loan and we are keen to repay this as soon as possible.
We need at least a further £18,000 to repay the loan and a further £19,000 to bring the garages up to a really good standard.
We will therefore be writing to everyone in the Village to ask them for a loan repayable after 5 years tp help us maximise the potential. Once the loan and improvement works have been completed we will use the income for the garages to improve other areas of the village. You can find the link here to donate or offer a loan.
