Chichester Community Development Trust have recently taken on The Cabin at Graylingwell Park which is available to local community and activity groups to hire.
The Garden is available to all residents to share and learn gardening and to grow their own produce.
A new Multi-Purpose Community Hall will be built beside the Chapel before the completion of 50% of the dwellings at Graylingwell, estimated to be about 2015.
Graylingwell Chapel was built in 1897 and served as the chapel for Graylingwell Hospital until about 2000. It is now being used as a multi use hall that can be used for services by Immanuel Church and also for a wide range of different activities for residents.
The original hospital orchard will be reinstated and be endowed to the Trust in a few years time.
The old hospital stables are to be converted to a series of Artists Studios to provide subsidised workspace for local artists, particularly those graduating from the nearby Chichester University who cannot currently afford to take commercial space to launch their own businesses.
The Water Tower is a very interesting but unusual space, and will be refurbished by seventy five percent (75%) of the dwellings built at Graylingwell.
The Trust will own and manage the community facilities at Graylingwell Park which will be endowed to the Trust for the use by residents and community groups in Chichester. Each of the facilities will have a specific purpose,
