Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland Labour MP, Tom Blenkinsop, today welcomed the news that Redcar and Cleveland Council had formally launched the formal consultation on possible future use for Guisborough’s historic Town Hall building.
As part of this process Guisborough residents are being encouraged to have their say on the future of the Town Hall as Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council wants to hear what local people think, to that end drop in sessions will be taking place on Monday 20 June between 3pm and 7pm and Tuesday 21 June between 3pm and 6pm.
Both events will start at Guisborough Town Hall so local people can get a feel for the building and then a question and answer session will be held at Sunnyfield House, on the other side of Westgate.
Tom said “This is a welcome step. This is an iconic listed building which dominates the Market Place, and has been sadly neglected by past owners. Conscious of local feeling it was finally purchased at auction by the council last year.
“It is important that whatever final use the building is, it is one that meets what the people of Guisborough and the wider East Cleveland area. I encourage everyone to get along to the meetings or to give their views to the council on-line at www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/guisboroughtownhall “
