ARGYLL and Bute Council will soon commence work on Campbeltown’s B-listed Town Hall which is being brought back to life by community groups working in partnership with the local authority.

The council has provided money to fund remedial repair work which will help to halt further decline in the building’s condition.

Scaffolding will be erected at the hall in September and it is envisaged that work will take between four to six weeks to complete. Further inspection of the roof will also be made and the aim is to make the building watertight before replacing the ceiling.

The council’s conservation officer, heritage surveyor and Campbeltown Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) officer will work closely together as work on the Town Hall is specified.

Depute leader of Argyll and Bute Council, John Semple, said: “This demonstrates our commitment to the people who are working hard to bring Campbeltown Town Hall into community ownership.

"They have an exciting vision for the hall and the contribution it can make to life in Campbeltown, and Argyll and Bute Council is happy to be able to provide this kind of support at this stage.”
