The New Deal funded £4.5 million refurbishment of Sorby House was completed in November last year. A management company was appointed at the beginning of February to manage the lettings, but two months on it still stands empty.

A quarter of the building is reserved for community groups, but New Deal’s Chief Executive, John Clark, has stated:

“Sorby House is not a community centre, its purpose is to generate income. We estimate that it will generate £250,000 per year to fund other community projects.”

With rents set high, who will be able to afford to rent space in Sorby House? Updates on this story will be on our website.
