Bridgend Town Council has grown significantly over the past seven years and after successful negotiations with Bridgend County Borough Council (BCBC), Bridgend Town Council acquired the Ty’r Ardd building in Sunnyside for community use and extension of public services.
Over the coming months the building will undergo refurbishment works and will become a new Town Hall for Bridgend.
The Town Hall will accommodate the Council Chamber and staff offices as well as accessible community spaces for the residents of Bridgend.
The Council is delighted to welcome former Evergreen Hall users to the Town Hall, where a range of activities, classes and clubs to enrich the lives of older and vulnerable people in Bridgend will continue.
Local residents will also have access to room hire for local community groups. Subsequently this move will free up space at Carnegie House which will be used to develop a flexible Heritage Space in the town centre to host local as well as travelling exhibitions.
