A new grant will help Alchemy support the reuse of an important local building
We are delighted to hear that we have been successful in attracting a small grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) in order to support Project Viability work on the Old School Hall in Sneinton.

This will fund the preparation of a report into the viability of 3 potential new uses for the Hall building, the scope of work and cost involved in making the transformation and the development of a preferred option in light of the 'Heritage Deficit'- in other words the amount of grant funding that might be needed to make the project viable.

Built in 1843, the building is one of the oldest institutional buildings left in the area. Part of a school until the 1970s, the building served as a community centre until 2016 when the Council closed it down and decided to sell it.

You can support the project by giving your feedback on the 3 options for reuse that are being considered.
