The hall was designed and built by the Persimmon Homes as part of the planning process for the Farleigh Green housing development.

Flax Bourton Parish Council finally took on ownership of the Village Hall, Farleigh Green Play Area and the football pitch in the summer of 2007.

In order to run the hall effectively, a small group of residents formed a Community Interest Company, named Flax Bourton Village Hall CIC, and the Council agreed to lease the Hall to them for a minimum period of three years.
