Designs for new-look Guildhall are delayed

Herald Series: A revamp of Abingdon Guildhall is still going ahead A revamp of Abingdon Guildhall is still going ahead

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.
