EH DEBATES CIVIC ISSUES

  • Comment

English Heritage has held a seminar to assess the future of London's civic buildings, following growing concerns about the future of many of the capital's town halls. According to EH, almost a third of these buildings are now used for purposes other than council administration and are in danger of being sold off or falling into disrepair. EH - together with the Shoreditch Town Hall Trust and Capital & Provident Regeneration - called for innovative uses to be found for these 'hidden treasures', saying they could often be used as the focal point of regeneration.

'They are the focus of the local community and make a crucial contribution to the sense of place, 'EH's director for the London region said.'It would be tragic if financial pressure saw them lost or removed from the public domain.'
