Town Centre Day Centre looking for a new use

Town Centre Day Centre
The former Charter Day Centre (the downstairs part) has been empty since it closed as a Day Centre for people with Learning Disabilities in October 2017. Before that it served as a Day Centre for the elderly until 2008.

Suggested uses by the estate agent are educational or as a surgery. It is next door to the library and Malthouse Surgery and multi story carpark.

It would also make a good day centre. The rent is too high though for a community group to take it on.

    Why did it become too expensive to be a day centre? The elderly used to use it and I thought it was ideal for a centre for the elderly.

    I am partly being tongue in cheek, but also; well…the opportunity to “do something wonderful” with the charter area as part of the Phase 2 redevelopment of that whole part of town has come and now gone.

    Rather than look to The Veil leadership to sort the space for the good of the community; it now seems a moot point. Just go to Didcot and be done with…

    With that in mind, may as well turn it all in to flats. It’s better than nothing I suppose.
