The proposed refurbishment has four main aims.
- To significantly improve the Small Hall and the Great Hall to provide high-quality conference and events spaces and services making them competitive and increasing their revenue – which is much needed and will be put back into public services in the Royal Borough.
- To reconfigure the Civic reception to enhance security and allow greater access control.
- To make the civic spaces, and bookable spaces, more energy-efficient and reduce building running costs overall.
- Create an inviting, open, social gathering space for residents, staff and visitors, and encourage a sense of community.
