1079: Community buildings

This paper is summarised from ‘The economic impact of community buildings in rural communities’ which gives the results of an ACRE survey of almost 10,000 rural community buildings

Year of Publication2010

Use of rural community buildings has trebled in the last 20 years and investment in them has a multiplier effect - building works create local employment, new halls activate community activity and development of services, which have important social benefits and create further employment. Key fiscal measures and targeted investment will help community buildings deliver these effects, weather the economic downturn and contribute towards the new Government’s vision for society.
