Refurbishment and restoration of semi-derelict Grade B listed building from its former use as a Town Hall, then Cinema returning it to its former role as a Town Hall and community facility. The building was extended, and a substantial mezzanine floor inserted within the former main hall, this allowed the upper Hall and its historic features to be retained whilst allowing the ground floor to be converted into modern climate controlled high density office space.
