In 2020 the court rules were changed to require that all residential tenants must be given 14 days’ notice of an eviction. What happens though if the eviction is cancelled on the day?
It has been an epic journey made possible by the determination of the residents, the hard work of the community support organisation (CAATS) and the unwavering support of local councillors not to mention the legal advice of Inderpal Singh and Dominic Curran of Anthony Collins Solicitors.
Further services are being moved to the site for child provision, including a new building to enable that delivery.
One Big Local member commented:
“In all my years of community based work – this is the most outstanding example of community empowerment, made possible by the ethos and practice of the Big Local programme. It’s now called the Venture Centre – and that venture has only just begun!”
The centre itself has not been used since before Christmas 2015 due to a break-in leading to closure of the building after gas pipes were left unsafe. However, with the lease signed and refurbishment commenced, plans for the centre include Terrific Twos childcare provision, a community café, IT facilities, refurbished community hall and much more.
The community asset transfer was particularly complicated as the construction of a new nursery timetable and the start of the new academic year drove everyone to work together to ensure the community centre and nursery could commence the work to bring these buildings into the community.
Our work at Anthony Collins Solicitors in community asset transfer ensures that through projects such as this we are able to assist with empowering communities.
