Statement - Southall Town Hall

Leader of the Council, Councllor Julian Bell said: "We are very disappointed with the decision of HHJ McKenna as we want to secure and revitalise the building in way that is not a drain on ever diminishing council resources.  Going foward, we will now take advice and consider our legal options as we strongly believe that this is a necessary step."

The council will not be disposng of the freehold of the site, but granting a lease of the building.  The building is Grade II listed so any alterations and demolition will require both planning and listed building consent.
