Brixham Town Council is offering the local community the chance to have its say on the regeneration of Brixham Town Hall through its “Your Town Hall, Your Say” consultation process.
The consultation, which will run during January, February and March, is seeking public opinion on an outline concept to regenerate the Town Hall.
Brixham Town Council is working with Devon Communities Together on the consultation, which is designed to encourage maximum participation from the public to ensure that people in the community have say in what they want from their newly developed Town Hall. The project will be supported by Heritage Lottery and aims to create a multi-functional community space that is open to everyone.
6th and 7th March 2020:
Brixham Town Council in partnership with Devon Communities Together will be holding Public Consultation events in the Scala Hall on Friday 6th March and Saturday 7th March 2020 between 10am – 1pm.
PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE: this is a change of date from the announcement in the January 2020 Brixham Signal and on other adverts in Brixham. The event is on 6th and 7th March, not 13th February.
Please come along to find out more about the regeneration of your Town Hall. You're welcome to pop in for two minutes or stay for the whole morning. If you are able, you can register your interest in attending using the following link, although this is not essential and you are very welcome to simply pop in on one of the days.

Other plans for the consultation period include public events, visits to local groups and organisations, all of which will be advertised on this page.
Information on the plans will also be available at the library, in shops, pubs, medical surgeries and dentists.
New homes plan
In addition to the plans for the Town Hall itself, Brixham Town Council has secured a £33,000 grant from Homes England in order to carry out a feasibility study into the possible supply of affordable accommodation in the Old Police House area at the rear of the building.
A community survey designed to assess the need for those new properties is also available at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PKSVGRK , which members of the public are encouraged to participate in.
