    Local Democracy Reporter

    A campaign group set up to prevent Beeston Town Hall from potentially being demolished or developed has asked for people to support the project.

    Last year it was revealed Broxtowe Borough Council was considering demolishing the building, or converting it to accommodation.

    After a campaign to preserve the building, which included a failed attempt to gain listed status, a group now hopes to put forward a plan on how the community can best use the building.

    Beeston Town Hall

    The Beeston Town Hall Community Project is an initiative launched by four local charities, which now hopes to set up a new charity known as the Beeston Town Hall Community Trust.

    The group aims to use this new corporate charity to take a lease of the building and manage and control its use for a range of purposes.

    It is now in the process of drawing up a detailed business plan, which will be presented to the council along with submissions from other community groups on Friday 15 June.
