The Greenhouse, Fetcham

It is with a great deal of sadness that the Directors of Peaceful Streams Community Interest Company Ltd have decided to terminate their efforts to establish The Greenhouse community centre which was to be based on the Cock Lane Recreation ground in Fetcham. 

This decision has been an extremely difficult one for us to take.  The issues we face have included an ever-extending timeframe, escalating costs, increasing complexity and very substantial risks to the project being approved.

After much consideration, we have come to the conclusion that these issues make the project unviable in its current form. 

Throughout this process we have been very grateful for the extraordinary fund-raising efforts undertaken on behalf of the project and the widespread support the Greenhouse enjoyed within the Fetcham community. 

We have therefore decided that the right course of action at this time is to enable 1st Fetcham Scouts to reassess the feasibility of a smaller scale replacement for the existing Scout Hut.  Peaceful Streams CIC will be wound up and its assets transferred to the 1st Fetcham Scouts. We will support 1st Fetcham Scouts with this revised project which we are confident can be more quickly and easily delivered than the proposed Greenhouse building.

The Directors of Peaceful Streams CIC would like to thank the many local people who have supported the project, and particularly the 1st Fetcham Scouts, St Mary’s Church, Greenwise, the Fetcham Residents Association, and our district and county councillors.

On behalf of the Directors, Peaceful Streams CIC Ltd:

Jamie Atkins
