The funding from the Mayor's Regeneration Fund (MRF) for the Dine in Southall project is currently being used for a detailed feasibility study to develop a business model for a destination training restaurant to provide new employment and training opportunities in the catering and hospitality industries, and investigate suitable sites for the project within the town centre. The GLA is working jointly with a multi-disciplinary consultant team and officers from the London Borough of Ealing, and is engaging with local stakeholders during the course of the study. These include businesses, the University of West London and Ealing, Hammersmith + West London College.
