Pendle Council’s Executive is this week being asked to declare Unity Hall in Vernon Street, Nelson, surplus to council requirements and transfer the building to Nelson Town Council.
The building is currently let to the Ithaad Community Development Trust Ltd on a 21-year lease at a rent of £7,000 per annum.
Ithaad is a charity giving advice on a range of issues.
Discussions have taken place between the charity and officers and members of Pendle Council, Nelson Town Council and Lancashire County Council with a view to securing the future of Unity Hall as an asset for the community.
The intention is to secure the future of Unity Hall, making the building available at nominal value to the Town Council and waiving the outstanding rent to help both the Town Council and Ithaad move forward together and attract financial and other support from Lancashire County Council to bring the building back into good condition.
