An exciting oportunity exists to set up a creative centre within a Victorian church and hall in Paignton. The maginficent grade 2 limestone building with its pointed spire is a local landmark. It lies next to the bus and railway station and close to the new library and information centre, so is easily accessible.
Both have clear full height spaces with exposed roof trusses. The church measures 21 x 12.8m and the hall 13 x 9m with maximum heights of 12m and 6.5 m respectively. The hall has a kitchen and toilets and all services are connected to the buildings. Planning permission has been given for the addition of mezzanines and change of use to office, retail, leisure and some residential.
Ideally, uses which add real vitality to the town are being sought with a bonus of having public access as an integral part of the use eg. arts, crafts, indoor market, heritage exhibition, cafe, arts exhibition space, studios and workshops etc. All expressions of interest are welcomed.
