Potton Hall for All


POTTON HALL FOR ALL COMMUNITY CONSULTATION
19TH SEPTEMBER – 23RD OCTOBER 2020

Potton Hall for All is the name for the new purpose built community facility that is planned for development in Potton. The planning for this exciting new space is run by a registered charity (also called Potton Hall For All) – and we share more about the project and the features and benefits of the space here. The Potton Hall For All building really will be a Hall for All; with versatility suiting a range of uses for every function, group and task – unlike no other in the town.

Potton Hall for All has entered a new phase this autumn!

A new community engagement campaign has been launched in partnership with Potton Town Council and is taking place in Potton from 19th September to 23rd October 2020. Residents can confirm their agreement for the final funding proposal and help make Potton Hall for all a reality by filling in the short consultation response form here.
