We are making good progress on our plans to build a new bandroom and you can find information here about what we are constructing and how the planning and building work is progressing.
What we are building:
Our site is at the corner of Rectory Hill and School Lane, on currently unused land adjacent to the Rectory Meadows Surgery. We have a building design for a single story community building with a band hall (approx 100sqm), two additional small teaching rooms, storage, a staff room, a library and toilets together with parking for up to 24 vehicles.

Our progress so far
The trustees of the band have signed a 70 year lease for use of the land and planning permission has been granted by Chiltern District Council to construct the bandroom.
An architect has been appointed to provide the detailed design and a qualified project manager is overseeing the whole project.
Preliminary work related to the site has been completed; this includes planning of services connections and building an entrance and driveway. The building construction work is underway and our contractor, Claridge and Hall have completed the foundations to damp-proof course level. It is planned to complete the work by June 2020, after which we will start the final phase of finishing, fitting and furnishing the building.
