A REVAMP of three town halls in Kirklees is to be considered.
Kirklees Council consulted residents about the town halls in Dewsbury, Batley and Cleckheaton this year.
The resulting proposals will be put to area committees in the next few weeks.
Clr Andrew Palfreeman, the council Cabinet member responsible for such matters, said: “The consultation showed that local people value their town halls. They want us to make the best use of these important civic assets.
“Each of the three halls has its own characteristics, but general messages came across.
“These included the need for more council services in town halls, more council committee meetings, an events programme to increase the number of visitors and greater use for functions, including weddings.”
He said specific issues had come to light for each town hall. He said: “In Dewsbury ideas included relocating the registrar’s service, developing wedding packages and tours and encouraging the use of the old courtroom as a film set.
“Wedding packages were also raised at Batley, as well as having an information centre and investigating new markets, such as antiques fairs.
“Cleckheaton Town Hall is already very well-used but an information centre has been suggested.”
The Cabinet will decide on the proposals after area committees have had their say.
A report on Huddersfield Town Hall will follow later.
