Long Eaton Town Deal’s Stable Block refurbishment project is set to recommence construction activities later this month.

The building is being renovated to become a centre for commerce and innovation.

Work originally got under way last year but had to be put on hold when Nottingham construction giant J Tomlinson Ltd – which won the contract – rocked the building sector by going bust.

Erewash Borough Council was among a string of local authorities and government bodies that were left having to find new contractors to complete projects.

It meant painstaking fresh negotiations – but the town hall’s search is now over. Derbyshire-based Trident Construction Services Ltd has been engaged to complete the work.

The Stable Block project is being funded by government levelling-up cash as part of a £24.8million “Town Deal” that the council helped win for Long Eaton.

Offices, meeting spaces and studios will be available when the building next to Long Eaton Town Hall is transformed. The new business hub aims to create more than 30 jobs.

Erewash Borough Council leader James Dawson said: “This showcase project is among several that will help transform Long Eaton thanks to the council securing huge government investment to revitalise the town.
