Wolverhampton Civic Halls revamp gets the go-ahead

A £10.4 million redevelopment of Wolverhampton’s Civic Halls came a step closer today after planning permission was granted for the revamp.

Preparatory work has begun on the Grade II listed venues, ahead of the city council appointing a main contractor.

The refurbishment of the Civic and Wulfrun Halls will be funded by £6.2 million from the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Deal and £4.2 million from the council.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said:

The city council said there will be a phased re-opening of the venues, which will be open to accommodate the Grand Slam of Darts in November.
