Doxey Hub - Community Consultation

The Parish Council have been approached by the owners of the building with an
opportunity to run this community building—located off Sutton Drive, in the centre of Doxey.

The Council feel this could be an excellent facility for the community with the
availability of hire for children's parties along with possibilities of hire to third
parties to provide activities for residents and a potential venue for holiday provision for children (all subject to third party availability).

The Council would like residents to comment on whether they would like the
council to run this community building. Without support from residents the council feel it will not be worth considering.

The consultation is open from 1st February—1st April
