A 10-year maintenance and improvement plan is to be drawn up for one of Nailsea's oldest community buildings.Nailsea Town Council has agreed to pay for a dilapidation survey for Church House to see what work needs to be done to the building, which is nearly 100 years old.Church House, which is the town council headquarters, is a much used building in the town and home to many local groups and organisations.It is used by church groups and for martial arts and dance classes as well as community organisations such as the Nailsea in Bloom committee.Nailsea Town Council clerk Ian Morrell said a major survey of the building was needed to assess its condition and plan for the future.Mr Morrell said: "Money has been intermittently spent on Church House over the past few years on improvements such as the new disabled toilets and on interior decoration. But what is really needed is a full survey of the building so we can plan how to manage the building over the next decade."The survey will look at the fabric of the building including the roof and the electrics and plumbing.The building was built in 1910, with money being raised by local churchgoers and it was later taken over by the town council.
