Blacks Solicitors supports Augment Partnership in its community development mission

Blacks Solicitors has helped coordinate a licence to underlet and underlease for community interest company Augment Partnership.

The commercial property team at Blacks advised Peter Smith, director of Augment Partnership, on the licence to underlet and underlease the first floor of Crescent House in central Skipton (pictured) with Craven College for nine months. The space was previously used as an adult educational training centre by Tyro Training.

Augment Partnership is a community interest company with a mission to resource people, places and programmes to grow thriving communities. The partnership took on the space to enable the training and development of people in the community.

The space will include Covid-secure private offices, fixed desks and room for coworking, meeting rooms, and a lounge. It is due to open after Easter.

Nick Dyson, head of commercial property at Blacks, commented: “It was great to assist Augment Partnership in taking on this new space in Skipton to allow them to develop their business and increase their community reach.”

“Peter has been fantastic to work with, and we wish him and the Augment team all the best in their future endeavours.”

Blacks was chosen to support the deal due to an existing relationship with Peter Smith, who added: “We are delighted to be finally in occupation of this expansive property. As a social enterprise, Augment will provide wellbeing and mentoring support together with business and digital upskilling to help people recover from the effects of lockdown, so that individuals can grow and our community can thrive.”

“We are most grateful to Elaine Flynn and the commercial property team at Blacks for their advice and professional support in securing a tricky three-way arrangement that now puts us in a good position to move forward as restrictions begin to ease.”
