$3m makeover for Balmain Town Hall


Inner West Council has announced it will invest up to $3 million over the next two years to fund a major revitalisation of Balmain Town Hall.

Stage one of the upgrade, worth $1.4 million, will take place on the ground floor and include:

– library and ground floor upgrade;
– improvements to access, functionality, comfort, lighting, and appearance;
– building condition and compliance works
– consideration of possible changes in building use arising from the civic precinct planning.

Council says stage two may require investment of an additional $2 million and include improvements on the first floor, but also include a full roof replacement to alleviate a leaking problem.

“Renewal of the solar system pending the outcome of building condition and roofing reports currently in progress is also likely to take place.”

“As one of the Inner West Council’s higher profile town halls, Balmain Town Hall will also be included in the Council’s plans for town halls to be opened up for use by the arts community,” Council said.
