[FIRST LOOK] Detailed redevelopment proposals by Bauman Lyons for Hebden Bridge’s town hall have been submitted by Hebden Bridge Community Association (HBCA)
The £3.7 million project includes creating a new foyer for the existing building as well as additional business and community facilities in a mainly stone, new-build development at the rear of the hall.
‘We’ve tried very hard to design a development which will complement the existing townscape, and which will rapidly become a key feature of Hebden Bridge community life,’ said HBDA trustee Andrew Bibby.
He added: ‘We’re trying now to make the town Hall site fit for the needs of the twenty-first century.’
HBCA says it is ‘well advanced’ with funding bids for the project from both the Community Builders investment fund and from the European Regional Development Fund.
The association expects the application to be heard by Calderdale Council in September or October and for its funding to be confirmed in early Autumn.
