Planning Permission granted for new headquarters

1st Consett and 1st Blackhill Scout Groups have been granted planning permission to build their new headquarters and Constance Street in Consett.

The building will be of mainly brick construction and 260 square metres in size. The total cost of the building is over £280,000, but it will provide a permanent home for Scouting for decades to come, as well as providing an exceptional community facility for the people of Consett.

We hope to start the demolition of our old wooden hut before the end of the Summer.

Our website has more photos and video tours of the new building.
