Community hall transfers win approval
PLANS to transfer community halls out of council control have been approved.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council has agreed to hand over facilities at Bradeley, Smallthorne, Sneyd Green, Tunstall and Joiners Square to the committees which run them.
It has also approved a deal to sell Packmoor community hall to its management committee for £65,000, which will also take on responsibility for its £150,000 maintenance backlog.
Several community halls have already closed because of the council's cost-cutting policy of shutting facilities which are unable to run without subsidy. It is making another £21 million in budget cuts from April.

Approving the transfers, council leader Mohammed Pervez said: "We want to encourage community asset transfers as much as possible. Because of huge cuts we are having to review the way we fund these facilities and unfortunately we cannot do things in the same way we always have."
