Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has commended the progress made on the refurbishment of Maesteg Town Hall during a site visit last week.
Construction work began on the £8.2m repair, restoration and extension of Maesteg Town Hall in Spring 2020, as the Grade II listed building is restored back to its former glory with a new roof and the addition of a glass atrium, studio theatre and cinema space, a café and bar, and a modern library.
Chris Elmore spoke to the contractors delivering the work to get an update on the redevelopment that will ensure the town hall’s longevity in the years ahead, with work set to complete later in the year.
Bridgend County Borough Council is working in partnership with Awen Cultural Trust and a number of key funders to deliver the project, which is one of the biggest investments Maesteg has seen in decades.
Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, said:
“It was an absolute pleasure to visit Maesteg Town Hall last week to get an update on the renovation works taking place. It was amazing to stand on the top of the town hall and see just how far work has progressed.
Once complete, the renovated Town Hill will not only be a first-class cultural centre and focal point for the local community, but a top visitor attraction for the whole county and region. With modern facilities for performers, participants and audiences, I cannot wait for the re-opening later this year.
I want to thank all the funders and developers who have been working hard on this project to make it a success for our community and a beautiful venue fit for future generations.”
