Building Green are attending the launch of the Crowdfunding appeal for Madeira Terraces today. This will be key to securing the ‘proof of concept’ for the restoration of the Victorian terraces, which are integral to the status of the Madeira Drive Green wall.
The Council says that the crowdfunding is a way to kick start this process. “It will:
Provide restored and rejuvenated new arches to show just how tremendous and beautiful the restored project could be
Allow us to test restoration methods and take apart the structure to investigate the ways in which it can most cost effectively be restored
Provide a new focal point – a show case or “show home” for the bigger project and a way to attract in commercial and external funding for the wider project.”
Building Green will continue to work with the Council and partners to press for and advise on the protection and restoration of the living wall which pre-dates and is integral with the Terraces.
