Bexhill residents have been invited to a meeting on June 15 to give feedback on the redevelopment planned for the Town Hall.

"This council-led redevelopment of the Town Hall and construction of a new civic centre will have huge benefits to Bexhill, its core community and wider interests.

“The Town Hall will undergo a light touch refurbishment, maintaining its historical beauty while enhancing its overall energy performance. It is acknowledged that the original main core of the Town Hall has significant heritage and is valued by the community.

"The project has the potential and ambition to become an exemplar building for a sustainable town centre redevelopment, reinvigorating existing building stock, and reducing carbon use in the fight against climate change.”

Visitors will be met by representatives of the architects and construction companies involved, who will be there to guide them through the project and answer any questions.

The meeting will be open to attend at any time between 2pm and 8pm on the day.
