A meeting of the project committee will take place this week. We must consider the bigger picture and look at the overall roof structure. Upgrading it to an A roof structure will be on the agenda, as the existing main roof is over 40 years old which is the lifespan of such a structure. We will have to comply with planning regulations if we go that route, however we will keep you updated about the alterations as they unfold.
