Neighbourhood groups, businesses and the wider community are invited to get involved in the design of the Your New Town Hall scheme.
What is Your New Town Hall?
In April, Lambeth Council and Muse Developments signed an agreement to develop the Your New Town Hall project, which will reduce the Council’s core office buildings from 14 to two, saving at least £4.5m a year.
The scheme will create new jobs and homes, deliver a purpose-built new council office building and free up space in the Town Hall for business and community use. The development will pay for itself through the redevelopment of old office buildings that are increasingly expensive to run.
The Council has already begun to deliver on its pledge to open up the iconic building to the wider community, set out in the Your New Town Hall strategy. Impact Hub Brixton, the new hot-desking enterprise space for the borough’s fledgling businesses, opened in the Town Hall earlier in 2014.
The Community Design stage and next stages of consultation
You're invited to participate in the early 'Community Design' stage - the creative process of defining and improving the proposals for the Town Hall development, up to the detailed designs.
In partnership with Muse, we're holding open consultation sessions where residents, businesses and community interest groups will be able to contribute.
We will hold an initial series of workshops with immediate neighbours followed by workshops with community interest groups to consider the publicly accessible areas of the Town Hall.
We will hold public drop-in sessions will also be held to gain feedback on how people would like to interact with and use the new Town Hall, and the whole borough will be invited to attend these.
The feedback received during the various workshops, public drop in events and via www.yournewtownhall.org will all be considered by the Council and Muse’s design team as they work up the detail of the proposals. A further round of public consultation and engagement will then be undertaken in the autumn.
