Milligan CreativeTrade shortlisted for Walworth Town Hall Proposals

Milligan Retail is delighted to announce that Milligan CreativeTrade have been invited by Southwark Council to submit Stage 2 proposals to revitalise Walworth Town Hall including public access to arts and cultural space.

In July 2013, the council put forward a vision of future uses for the building including an enhanced library service, flexible community space and facilities for marriage, civil partnerships and citizenship ceremonies, with a £20m budget.

Paul Hanegraaf, Creative Navigator at Milligan CreativeTrade said: “We are pleased to be shortlisted to tender for this opportunity with Southwark Council. Our focus at CreativeTrade is to develop an exciting makers, creators and independent brand destinations to visit, to explore, to learn and shop, in towns and communities. We look forward to working on plans for the Southwark site and sharing our vision for its future with the community and the council.”

The final decision will be made in spring 2019, and the selected proposal will be given a long leasehold interest and start the planning procedure.
