Walworth Town Hall


Walworth Town Hall update

Back in February 2016 Southwark Council went out to the public to discuss the future of Walworth Town Hall after the cost of refurbishment costs significantly increased.

Whilst the council remains committed to the historic building, which was damaged by fire in 2013, it is estimated the original plans to restore it plus create a community hub with a library and registrar services will now be around £36m, £16m more than budgeted for the original restoration.

The extra costs have been caused by the recent increase in building costs, the extension of the original scope of the project to include the old library and technical complications with the building that have only come to light following extensive survey work.

Council is currently undertaking further investigations into the project in order to come to a delivery solution.
