Revamp and new hall on the agenda

Evesham Editorial 9th Aug, 2018   0

A REVAMP of the town hall could move a step closer as council chiefs prepared to meet to discuss the way forward and plans for the new community hall for the town.

Town councillors are set to meet this evening to discuss the suggestions to refurbish the offices on the High Street and in a bid to move the Community Hall project forward.

The Observer reported last week on the £190,000 in New Homes Bonus cash given to the town council by Wychavon chiefs for the proposed new hall off Defford Road.

If approved by district planning chiefs, the new hall will seat up to 150 people and provide a vital local lifeline for town groups and clubs.

The proposals were backed by residents in a consultation last year but have been heavily criticised by a former Mayor of Pershore, Coun Charles Tucker.

He claimed the project had no legitimacy despite a majority of town councillors supporting the scheme and has called for council chiefs to revisit plans for a second floor for the town hall on the High Street.

However, current Mayor Coun Chris Parsons has called for all councillors to come together and support the ambitions proposals.
