The plans for the Town Hall will:

  • Ensure the building is continued to be used as a town hall
  • Increase public access into the building and improve movement through the spaces available for use by the public
  • Increase and upgrade facilities by refurbishing the existing accommodation to a higher standard
  • Upgrade the performance of the building by providing a suitable working environment, replacing services, introducing more servicing and increasing the sustainability of the building


The Town Hall is the principle heritage asset within the Triangle site and is Grade II listed. The plans for the building will reinstate and reveal much of the architectural merit of the original building. The proposals include:

  • Improvements to the arrival experience within the Town Hall through the reinstatement of the atrium bringing new light into the building
  • Creation of a new civic processional route linking the Town Hall main entrance through the centre of the building, connecting Buckner Road to the new Civic Office building
  • A new reception at the heart of the building
  • A new pedestrian bridge will traverse the atrium at ground floor level
  • New committee meeting room to be integrated with the community spaces
  • Upgraded and refurbished council accommodation

  • An external glass canopy to be constructed to provide a covered link between Brixton Hill and the new landscaped courtyard
  • The Assembly Room will be lightly refurbished respecting the architectural significance and character of the spaces
  • Whilst respecting the heritage aspects of the building, new services will be installed throughout the building to improve the efficiency and occupant comfort of the building
  • An insulated green roof system will be provided to the second storey roof addition providing ecological benefits as well as improved thermal performance of the building
  • The roof of the Assembly Halls and adjacent office accommodation will be provided with photovoltaic panels (solar panels) to aid in the renewable energy generation of the triangle site
