Full Council Meeting Discusses Community Centre's Future
on: December 8, 2016, 21:32

Earlier today Stoke on Trent City Council discussed issues surrounding the future of Goldenhill Community Hall/Centre at it’s full council meeting.

Sheila Sidley, Lead petitioner gave a presentation in support of the 1,000 plus petition signatures to Stoke on Trent City Council to save the community centre from closure.

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (SAGE) and the Out & About Club who are users of the centre also attended the meeting from the public gallery to support the petition.

The City Council said it was not their intention to propose closure of the community centre, although it was announced at the Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Public Meeting by Councillor Martin Garner earlier in the year that Ruth Smeeth M.P. and he had been informed of the council’s intention to close the centre by the end of March 2017 if an asset transfer partner was not found.

At today’s meeting it was agreed the “Overview & Scrutiny Committee” would investigate the situation further where it has the power to make recommendations to the cabinet on the centre’s future.
