The reports of the consultants who have been carrying out a consultation to envisage how the Unionist Club might become a 21st Century Community Centre for Bruton were completed in April 2019. Following the Council election the reports can now be published. The consultants’ recommendation is that:
The Club and Council are advised that local people’s vision for a new community centre can be realised with a multi-purpose event space that allows for gatherings and performances, with community café (not for profit model) and Club bar, skittle alley and some new parking.
Their reports have been noted by the Council at its meeting on 28 April 2019. It will now be for the Unionist Club to decide whether and how the recommendations are taken forward.
The consultants (Counterculture Partnership LLP) produced three reports in support of their recommendation.
- The Executive Summary gives a short overview of their conclusions and recommendations;
- The Business Plan Report is a more detailed report with recommendations;
- The Evidence Report gives details of the information found during the consultation.
There is more background information about the tender process, and what the Council asked the consultants to do on the Procurement page.
