St Marychurch Town Hall was a finalist and awarded a built-in quality award for Best Conversion by Torbay Council.
The site is situated in St Marychurch, at the junction of Babbacombe Road and Manor Road, Torquay.
The proposed redevelopment involved a change of use of the former Town Hall for residential use, involving relatively minor works externally. The building has Grade II Listed status therefore any necessary alterations were undertaken with the minimum disturbance to the existing structure to retain as much of the original fabric as possible and involved relocating a public toilet block as part of the redevelopment.
“In our view the redevelopment of this “Brownfield” site will provide substantial benefit to the local community and a rejuvenated entrance to St Marychurch, Torquay”.
