Civic Hall Refurbishment Project - Summer 2022

The Civic Hall was built in the late 1960's and officially opened in 1971.  Phase 1 of the refurbishment works were carried out when the library and civic hall merged in 2014-2015, but not all parts of the building were refurbished.  Phase 2 is now due.

Surveys have confirmed that some systems have not been updated for more than 50 years and are in need of urgent replacement. 

There are issues with:

Asbestos - Electrics and electricity supply - Gas installation - Heating & hot water - Health & safety (including fire alarm, emergency lighting) -  The roof - Drains.
