Next Steps for Nora Grace Hall
Tring Council is looking for volunteers to help with the project to build a new hall to replace the Nora Grace Hall.
Last November a six-week public consultation was carried out on the hall’s future.
The hall is now 50 years old, and showing its age. The Council’s next step will be to submit a planning application for a modern replacement building with sustainability at its heart, ensuring that Tring has a centrally located community hub to serve the next generation.
More than 150 people attended the first consultation event with 50 more attending on a day when temperatures dipped to -5! More than 200 questionnaires were completed. You can read the analysis report, view the full findings, and watch the architect’s talk at www.tring.gov.uk/nora-grace-hall-redevelopment-project.
Feedback showed that social activities were a higher priority than commercial space. So the proposed commercial office space will be removed from the plans and replaced with interchangeable space to be used for social group purposes. Further research will continue to take place and plans updated accordingly.
More than 40 people registered interest in being part of the working party, and three main roles are also needed to be filled: fundraiser, project manager and business development manager.
The Council is asking for support in formulating job descriptions, and finding people to fill the roles. If you can help, email firstname.lastname@example.org, with a one-paragraph outline of how you could help and please put ‘NGHWP Volunteer’ in the subject line.
