Project: Learning in Todmorden

The former college building has been asset transferred to Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub (TLCCH) CBS. The CBS is constitutionally bound to serve its community above all other interests.

The college building is well-designed and remains fit for purpose with all services and full disabled access to 95% of the building.

Facilities include a hall, stage, gym, classrooms, conference rooms, workshops, offices and a children’s centre.

The Towns Fund will enable the TLCCH to:

  • Improve thermal efficiency, which will reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduce overheads
  • Improve ventilation, which improves indoor air quality and will result in less reliance again on fossil fuels to run mechanical equipment and will reduce overheads
  • Install public access Wi-Fi and high-speed broadband for business users
  • Restore the sports hall and gym to its original 400 seat capacity to allow functions, conferences and concerts.
