Essential repairs to Trowbridge's historic Town Hall
The work will take place from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and it's anticipated it will take around three months to complete
Essential repairs are being carried out at Trowbridge's historic Town Hall ensuring it can continue to operate as an important community facility in the heart of the high street.
Safety hoarding has been erected around the building so that the repairs can be made. This includes repairing sections of the roof to prevent leaks following periods of heavy rainfall and repairs to the stonework on the front facade of this Grade 2 listed building to avoid further deterioration.
During the repair works, a comprehensive inspection of the whole property will be undertaken. This will enable future planned works to be specified and programmed into the maintenance schedule ensuring the ongoing upkeep of this facility.
The work will take place from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and it's anticipated it will take around three months to complete.
The Town Hall's programme of events and activities are unaffected by the works and people using the Town Hall can continue to access the building using the existing entrance. A temporary section of footpath has been installed to ensure the safety of pedestrians as they walk past the safety hoarding. All businesses in the immediate area remain open as usual.
Cllr Phil Alford, Cabinet Member for Housing, Strategic Assets and Asset Transfer, said: "The Town Hall is a much-loved gem in the heart of Trowbridge so it is really important that we look after the fabric of the building to ensure the local community can continue to use and enjoy this facility for many years to come."
