Planning for the next 50+ years

The County Hall, an iconic building in Abingdon, once served as a Court Sessions Hall

covered market

and down below a cellar for storage. It currently houses The Abingdon Museum.

The building has required major maintenance and updates at roughly 50 year intervals. The last was 60 years ago. The next major maintenance and updates could be about to happen after a successful £2M bid to the Lottery Fund. Described as 'Erection of external lift tower and associated accessibility works, internal alterations and general refurbishment of building' the plans goes before the District Council Planning Committee early in July. To see the Planning Application go to Planning Public Access and Search application 09/00922/LBC .
