    Fit for purposes

    I have tried to use "fit for purposes" in my sentence. I am wondering if it is grammatically correct.

    The local authorities have decided that the old music hall is no longer fit for purposes and they are going to build a new one.

    To me, it sounds much better with "no longer fit for its purpose".
