Nottingham Hackspace to leave the Old Police Station

Early on Wednesday morning 30th March 2011 we had a call from The Art Organ about their tenancy on the Old Police Station 3 – 9 Station Street in Nottingham.

Unfortunately the 1st floor tenants have to vacate by the 30th April 2011. The 2nd floor will vacate by the 30th May 2011.

The Art Org are still committed to finding Nottingham Hackspace some space with in it’s buildings and we hope to have news very soon about our new rooms! Our first priority is to ensure we have a place to hack, that is open to our members when they need it. Our second priority will be to try and stay as close to Nottingham station as we can.

In the meantime it’s Hacking as usual at the Old Police Station and we’ll continue to have Open Hack Night on Wednesdays!

Letter from The Art Org

Dear Studio Holder,

It is with great regret that yesterday we recieved information from the Landlord of 3 – 9 Station Street that he will be drawing our lease to a close much earlier than expected. This is due to the impending need to upgrade this building.

Unfortunately this has come with some deadlines for each floor of the building, affecting some much sooner than others due to the schedule of work the landlord has planned.

Floor 1 to be vacated by 30th April 2011
Floor 2 to be vacated by 31st May 2011

Ideally we will look to vacate all studios by the 30th April as to not incur any further costs or fees for this building.

These dates are not negotiable and the landlord is within his right to give 4 weeks’ notice as underserved as this may seem. For most people there are some other options and we will help to relocate where possible.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with the project in 3 – 9 over the last number of years and we are dissapointed that this building has to come to an end, after so much tijme and effort has been spent on it. As you know we had much bigger plans for the project within this building and we did not anticipate having to vacate so soon.

Kindest regards

Liam & Rob
