Designs for new-look Guildhall are delayed
10:00am Thursday 15th May 2014 in News
The revised, cut-price designs for a new Abingdon Guildhall will not be presented until June, it has been revealed.
The new plans, which are being drawn up on a budget of £3.4m, were due to be presented to Abingdon Town councillors at a meeting tonight.
But the council’s Guildhall committee has now postponed that meeting to Tuesday, June 3, at 5.30pm, to “allow the architects further time to fully investigate a number of improvements which could be made”.
Abingdon Town Council was hoping to spend £4.4m refurbishing the 1960’s hall, including a new cinema and cafe, but has had to reduce its budget after a bid for £1.9m Heritage Lottery funding failed.
