We are a charity, comprised entirely of volunteers, that runs a thriving community hall leased from our parish council on a fully repairing lease. Nearly three years ago our landlord, the parish council, voted to extend our lease for 30 years. Since then, there has been endless stalling. It doesn't seem to be a priority for the council and we have no timescale as to when this new lease will be available, despite numerous requests and questions at council meetings as to when the lease will be ready for comment. The old lease needs significant rewriting. We are now down to 3 years on our existing lease, which is affecting our ability to apply for grants and inhibiting the planning and implementation of improvements to the building.
