Proposal Details: Axminster Tools and Machinery (ATM) and The Axe Valley Community College (TAVCC) are interested in exploring how a joint business / education partnership could combine to create a long term, sustainable plan for the future of the building. Our areas of interest are in exploring expanding current community leisure services, educational opportunities and youth services. We are interested in developing the building so that it has a secure commercial base from which it can support and sustain wider community needs in the areas identified above. There has been limited opportunity at this stage for more detailed planning and consultation to have taken place. However both organisations are committed to / have long term interests in Axminster and ensuring that services for the community are maintained during this period of government financial restraint.
