Queen's Hall & Library Refurbishment Programme

Now that the decision has been made to refurbish both buildings, the Parish Council is starting to move forward with detailed planning on the refurbishment activities. A refurbishment working group has been created that will oversee the management and financial control of the programme. This group also includes representativeness from groups who use both buildings, so that building knowledge and usage can be considered as part of the decision making.
Given the size of the expenditure, after an extensive tendering and interview process in 2017, the council appointed BowmanRiley as consulting architects and project managers for the Queens Hall. The council has agreed that their professional project management and technical consultancy would be extended to the library. The target is that by the middle of May, BowmanRiley will develop a proposed scope of works and detailed costings. Once agreed the different work packages will then go out to tender. To aid the process, and avoid duplicating activities, all of the work done by the Save Our Library site will be passed across to be considered as part of their tendering process. The expectation is that by the end of June, quotes for the work to be done should be returned, at which stage the Parish Council can confirm the precise figure to be borrowed. In the meantime, the process for authorised borrowing is underway.
The replacement of the windows in both buildings means that it is highly likely that planning applications will be required for both the Queens Hall and the Library.
In the meantime, the Parish Council would encourage everyone in the village who may be thinking of hiring space to consider both the Queens Hall and the library. Please contact Cate Perman admin@burleyparishcouncil.co.uk for more information.
