A meeting was recently held between the parish and district councils to discuss the future of a much-loved Croxley community space.
The Red Cross Hall has been out of use for four years, after the Red Cross Society announced it would stop accepting outside bookings in 2019.
Several ideas for the venue’s future use have been proposed since then, but none have come to fruition.
On August 2, Croxley Green Parish Council (CGPC) and the building’s owners, Three Rivers District Council (TRDC), revealed that they had recently met to discuss the venue’s future.
TRDC revealed they have been exploring plans to convert the venue into a new community space, with room for affordable residential accommodation.
Both councils have committed to consulting with residents once plans are finalised.
CGPC chairman councillor Stephen Crabtree said: “On behalf of CGPC, I am pleased that we have received an update from TRDC about their plans and look forward to ongoing discussions.”
Councillor Sarah Nelmes, Leader of TRDC, said: “Our meeting was productive, and we are committed to working with the parish and local community to achieve the best for all on this site.”
