Welsh town hall to reopen after building extension

Persevering despite restrictions and other disruptions amidst the pandemic, a refurbishment project that involves extending the town hall in Wales’ Maesteg has remained on track.

The large-scale renovation scheme, valued at £7.9 million, will see major changes to the Grade-II listed property upon completion, including a new extension with a glass atrium.

From local councils adapting public buildings to property owners planning house extensions in Knutsford, Wales and other areas around the UK, professional architects can be relied upon for guidance. With experience of the rules regarding building extensions specific to a locale, and a comprehensive understanding of the application process for planning permission, they can prove a valuable resource for project advice.

Maesteg Town Hall was first constructed in 1881 and was last renovated prior to World War I. Over the years, it has served many different purposes, including acting as a theatre and recently offering local organisations a location to hold meetings.

A spokesperson for the local council commented on the town hall’s dilapidated condition before work began to Wales Online:

“The upper seating area had already been cordoned off, the roof needed replacing entirely, and water was leaking into the building and damaging the structure. If left unattended the town hall would have had to eventually close to the public.”

The new renovations have been designed to refocus the town hall to be the centre of the community, where it can provide a venue for local events.

The reopening of Maesteg Town Hall is currently planned for spring in 2022.
