Public scrutinises plans for The Brindley
The public was able to see plans for The Brindley and to ask questions with architects, planners and landscapers last Thursday.
Initial feedback was very positive.
Don’t worry if you couldn’t get there – there is still chance to have your say as the online survey remains open until 22 April 2022.
The link to the online survey can be found here:
Last month Halton Borough Council revealed design concepts to show how The Brindley could look under ambitious plans to develop the existing building and surrounding area.
The Brindley Enhancement project is one of seven projects that together form the ‘Reconnecting Runcorn’ Town Investment Plan, aimed at making Runcorn a prime location, by providing the workforce, connectivity and infrastructure business needs to thrive.
In July 2021, it was announced that £23.6million had been allocated to the Runcorn Town Investment Plan as part of the Government’s Town Deal.
Anyone attending had the opportunity to complete a survey designed to understand how well The Brindley currently meets the needs of local people and organisations – and what, if anything, could be done as part of the enhancement works to improve this.
The Brindley Theatre Enhancement would see an extension to current facilities to create a larger cafe-restaurant and a welcoming community space and outdoor events venue on Brindley Green.
Under the plans, the library currently located at Granville Street would also be relocated and integrated in to The Brindley building, which it is hoped will enhance facilities and attract new visitors.
Paper versions of the survey can be requested by emailing email@example.com or by calling 0303 333 4300.
The survey will close on 22 April 2022.
