It means that our Walled Garden project can now become a reality and that the local community and visitors from further away will be able to experience a fabulous new addition to Burnby Hall and Gardens."

Councillor Gary McMaster, portfolio holder for enhancing communities, said: "Burnby Hall and Gardens is a hugely popular attraction, and I am delighted that we have been able to facilitate this payment through Commuted Sums provided by local housing developments as a condition of their planning approval. I hope that the venue is successful in raising the rest of the money required for this exciting new project."
