New Building Consultation New Building Consultation On the 3rd July 2019 Nottingham City Council will commence a series of community consultation events regarding their proposal for Nottingham Mencap to purchase a long lease on Edwards Lane Community Centre. We’ve been raising funds to purchase, renovate and extend the Community Centre. Working with Richardson Hall Construction Ltd we plan to design and deliver ample, high quality space, for our Charity and local residents. We aim to secure the long term future of the new Centre as a vibrant hub of the local community and a place our members can proudly call their new base. Our members are so pleased to have the chance to move such a short distance. To be sharing our building with our local community would prove a great example of community integration. We look forward to discussing how we can best ensure this Project is a success for all involved. Nottingham Mencap is thrilled with this potential opportunity. We desperately need to move from Harpenden House on Edwards Lane where we’ve been for nearly 70 Years. Based on City Hospital land our current building is beyond repair and the Hospital is seeking a massive hike in ground rent. We will keep you all posted as the consultation progresses. Booking for this event has now closed.
