Local residents and businesses are invited to attend a public drop-in event to find out more about the refurbishment and remodelling of the Trowbridge Town Hall and to see the stunning artist illustrations of how the building could look once the works are completed.

Trowbridge Town Hall is going to be subject to extensive refurbishment and remodelling as part of the Future High Streets Fund (FHSF) £16 million investment in Trowbridge, enabling it to provide a greater capacity to hold events as well as a diverse programme of cultural and social activities.

The public drop-in event being held in Park View, Trowbridge Town Hall on Thursday 20 October 2022 from 2pm to 6.30pm provides an ideal opportunity for the local community to see how the designs are progressing before a planning application is submitted later in the year. Officers from Wiltshire Council, Trowbridge Town Hall Trust and Purcell, the architectural and heritage consultancy practice appointed to oversee the design of the renovations, will be on hand to answer any queries people may have.

Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: We are delighted to be able to share with the local community the latest designs for refurbishing this historic grade II listed building enabling it to fulfil its potential as a landmark asset for the town. We're sure the artist illustrations will begin to build a sense of excitement about the building's future, and we would encourage local people to come along and find out more. People will be able to formally comment on the proposals as part of the planning process, once the planning application has been submitted.

One of our key priorities is to make sure our towns are resilient, ensuring our communities are able to grow sustainably with access to leisure, arts, heritage and culture. Cabinet put local residents at the heart of its decision making when it confirmed last month that Trowbridge Town Hall Trust will be the end user of the building once the works are complete and will be granted a 125-year lease to secure the long-term future of this much loved cultural and community asset.

The Director of Trowbridge Town Hall Trust, Alan Wright added: After all the hard work of the last nine months working beside the brilliant build design team led by Clare Phillips of Purcell, it is so exciting that, at last, we will be able to share our vision for the building with all our stakeholders and give a much clearer indication of the timeline that will take us from where we are today to the re-opening in early 2025.
