Residents given opportunity to view County Hall plans

Residents are being invited to see first hand details of a proposed new frontage for County Hall.

The County Council is making good progress on much needed external and internal refurbishment and is now looking to improve the front of the building.

The work would include:

  • Re-roofing the hexagonal buildings which contain the kitchen, canteen and Council Chamber spaces.

  • Creating new facade next to the memorial and grassed areas at the front of the building.

  • A small extension to the existing reception building.

  • An extra car-park for approximately 26 cars where the flag poles are currently located (the flag poles will be relocated elsewhere on the front of the site).

Residents living in the immediate vicinity have already been invited to a pre-planning consultation event about the plans. 

Any other interested residents are also welcome to the event to be held on Tuesday, August 13 between 2.30pm and 7pm, at the County Hall Restaurant which can be accessed through the main reception.

The project team will have stands showing proposed plans and architect’s impressions and will be happy to answer any queries about the works. Visitors will also have the opportunity to leave written feedback on the proposed designs.

A formal planning application for the work will be submitted later this year.
