The Town Hall

The Society has opposed proposals to convert this old building to offices or an exclusive restaurant, and feels that it should continue to be freely available for access by the public, providing a location for small concerts, amateur plays and exhibitions.

Nevertheless there is a real problem with continuing public access because the building falls short of the requirements for disabled access.  The Council has recently appointed consultants to prepare a feasibility study into its future use, and the Horsham Society is among the groups that will be consulted.

February 2008 update

Horsham District Council is once again considering plans to lease the Town Hall to a commercial tenant, after learning that historic buildings are in great demand as quality restaurant premises.  The Society will continue to oppose this course of action, and has written to HDC leader Mrs Elizabeth Kitchen - follow the link below to read this.  There is also a link to HDC's Report to Council regarding the future of the Town Hall..
