 St Peter’s New Hall Project - Update July 2018

St Peter’s New Hall Project


It is possible, but not at all certain, that building work on the New Hall at St Peter’s could begin in September this year.  Work has been going on behind the scenes with a number of consultants to firm up previous estimates and to make sure that we have a scheme that conforms to our planning approval and building regulations.


Everything depends on two big figures – (a) the amount the development company is prepared to pay for the land, and (b) a firm estimate of the cost of building and equipping the new hall.  If (a) is enough to pay for (b) then the hall can go ahead – if not???  We expect to be informed of these two figures in the very near future.


In the meantime, consultants’ fees have pretty much exhausted the money we had from a number of fund-raising efforts, the latest of which was the Brunch on 28 April.  We shall soon have to engage a solicitor for the sale of the land at a cost of at least £3,000.  The next fund-raising event is the Strawberry Tea on 10 July but we are happy to receive individual contributions toward this important project at any time.
