The historic Townhouse building has retained its civic use, with the main Council Chamber room upgraded allowing it to be multifunctional: used, for example, for wedding receptions, Council meetings and a meeting space for local groups.
The additional floor space created has allowed a public service point to be located on the ground floor.
The Registrar will be located on the ground floor. Open plan office space has also been created for use by Council employees.
An Enterprise Hub has been inserted on the first floor offering advice and support to start-up businesses.
The building is open to all and fully accessible.
