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. Click the pictures below to see the site plan, floor layout and elevations.
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.
The construction of the architect designed building is now nearing completion, although the installation of the windows and doors has been held up by the coronavirus lock-down. In the meantime, our contractor, Claridge and Hall is continuing work on the internal aspects. We hope that the construction will be finished by the end of July, after which we will start the final phase of finishing, fitting and furnishing the building.
