Ruddington Parish Council is delighted to announce that we’ve purchased the Community Centre site on The Green from Nottinghamshire County Council, for use by our community in the future.
We’ll be considering options on how to use the building and consulting with residents and local businesses in due course. In the short term, we intend to make use of the Community Centre’s parking spaces to help ease parking issues within the village centre.
Chairman of the Parish Council, Councillor Allen Wood, commented: “This is a significant milestone and the most important decision taken by the Parish Council in several decades – which is fitting as we’ve just celebrated its 125th anniversary.”
Local county councillor and Deputy Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Councillor Reg Adair, said he was delighted that a deal had been done between the County Council, the Parish Council and the local community.
Cllr Adair added: “This will be a tremendous facility for the local community to access, and one which I’m sure will be well used in the future by the youth of Ruddington and the wider community.”
“As well as the Community Centre being a great space for organisations and groups to hold meetings and activities, the extra car parking spaces will be a welcome benefit for everyone in the village.”
