Tealing Hall Ownership
Major Decision to be made by Residents in 2013
To all Tealing Community,
PROPOSED PURCHASE OF TEALING HALL
Tealing Hall is owned by Angus Council and leased to Tealing Hall Management Committee for use by Tealing Community. Tealing Hall Committee are presently considering taking ownership of the Hall through a Community Asset Transfer. This would involve a payment to Angus Council, but would be below the true value.
There are many advantages for Tealing:
- A legacy for future generations
- A greater pride and feeling of ownership of our hall, that would hopefully encourage the community to provide greater support for the continued existence and improvement of our community centre.
- As part of the proposal it is intended to “make over” the large area to the rear of the hall.
This proposed transfer will also have challenges:
- the rear car park, which has been very much out of site out of mind in the past, and has been used for disposing of waste material and burning rubbish.
- Tealing Hall was built 60 years ago on a wartime budget and will continue to require significant maintenance and operational expenditure, approximately £6,000 per year. In addition there have been major refurbishments carried out to toilets and kitchen to meet present day expectations. These costs have been successfully met by a combination of low hall rentals, fundraising, community support (200 club), voluntary labour and external grants.
- There is presently a 9 person committee that have managed the hall very successfully over the last 50 years, however the average age is over 70 and the core committee has remained unchanged for over 10 years.
We have produced a business plan for the hall that provides a vision for the future that involves greater community involvement. This plan has the support of the Hall Committee and the Community Council conditional on getting support from the wider community.
To assess the support we plan to have a public meeting to present our plan for the future. In addition, we would appreciate return of the attached short questionnaire. Please complete and return by 20 Oct 2013 or earlier to:-
