Central office space available for community groups

The Marlborough Community Centre on Alfred Street has offices available for non-profit organisations

Are you a non-profit community group providing services for the people of Marlborough, and do you need a place to call home?

If so, the Marlborough Community Centre Trust has a deal for you!

The Trust operates the Marlborough Community Centre building in Alfred Street and has four empty offices it is keen to find tenants for.

Council’s appointee on the Trust, volunteer Jim Sampson, says the building offers an affordable space for non-profit organisations and is a fantastic opportunity for community groups to have a home of their own. “We do not charge market rental and rates are negotiable,” he said.

Two of the empty offices available are on the ground floor and two larger offices are on the second floor.

“Tenancies are ideally for 12 months but we have had tenants in for less by arrangement,” Mr Sampson said.

Rental covers electricity, heating, rates, insurance and cleaning of communal areas, which includes two kitchenettes and toilets. Each room has a heat pump and access to wi-fi.

“Tenants are responsible for insurance for their own equipment, rubbish disposal and setting up their own telephone,” Mr Sampson said.

The building also has a meeting room which is available for all tenants to use. Outside groups including commercial enterprise may use this for $15 per hour.

The Trust, established in 1995, operates the building and has four trustees. “Rent from the office spaces is designed to cover the cost of running the building - the Trust itself is non-profit,” Mr Sampson said.

Current tenants include Citizen’s Advice Bureau, Greypower and Age Concern.
