Plans for a Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre for Fi­ley have been un­veiled, with mem­bers of the pub­lic in­vited to see the de­signs.

Peo­ple in Fi­ley are be­ing in­vited to have their say on am­bi­tious plans for a Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre in the town.

The Dis­cover Fi­ley De­vel­op­ment Trust (DFTT) is also ren­o­vat­ing Fi­ley Coun­try Park and needs pub­lic sup­port as it looks to make bids for fund­ing to move the projects for­ward.

A meet­ing will be held at The Evron Cen­tre at 7pm on Mon­day Novem­ber 13 and all are in­vited to go along to see the plans.

The de­vel­op­ment trust is now work­ing closely with Scar­bor­ough Bor­ough Coun­cil to fa­cil­i­tate the next stage of the project, the pro­vi­sion of a per­ma­nent her­itage, ed­u­ca­tional and vis­i­tor cen­tre on Fi­ley’s Coun­try Park.

In its de­vel­op­ment brief it states: “DFDT has a vi­sion for an all weather, all sea­son build­ing in Fi­ley’s Coun­try Park.

“A cen­tre of ex­cel­lence, which will re­con­nect com­mu­ni­ties with our her­itage and en­vi­ron­ment.

“The pro­posed cen­tre will be a place to bring fam­ily and rel­a­tives; a cen­tre for her­itage and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties, the arts, astron­omy, his­tory and na­ture; a sup­port hub for lo­cal and long dis­tance walk­ers, sail­ing, kayak­ing and cy­cling.

“A work­shop and re­tail space for artists and de­sign­ers and a plat­form for com­mu­nity lo­cal cre­atives.

“We are look­ing to pro­vide a cost-ef­fec­tive, shared re­tail and de­vel­op­ment space for new and es­tab­lished ar­ti­sans to dis­play and sell their work in a re­tail en­vi­ron­ment with­out the usual over­heads in­curred by small busi­nesses.

“A re­source for out­door mar­kets, train­ing, com­mu­nity safety days and other events.

“A place to nur­ture a de­vel­op­ing na­ture tourism in­dus­try which is in­de­pen­dent of sea­son.

“A schools re­source and field stud­ies cen­tre.

“A cat­a­lyst for fur­ther changes to de­velop train­ing and at­tract busi­ness en­trepreneurs to the area.” All are wel­come to at­tend the pub­lic meet­ing.
