Have your say on one of the iconic buildings in Trowbridge!
Trowbridge Town Council over the past few years has invested in updates to the mechanical and electrical services for the bandstand (which is ‘unseen’) and now is the time to give it the facelift it desperately needs. We have commissioned an architect to undertake some designs for external appearance improvement and address accessibility issues. The bandstand currently doesn’t have disability access to the stage area, leaving anyone with a mobility impairment isolated from anyone who does not have any mobility restrictions.
We propose to add a suspended floor on top of the current stage to level the rear door access to the stage and also provide a suitable base for dance and performance. Adjustments to the rear stair landing will allow the installation of a single occupier platform lift providing that need for disability access. Permanent steps fitted to the front elevation along with the integration of a fixed light truss will improve its appeal to organisers wanting to use it. Options to look at a ‘Green roof’ are to be considered with water harvesting which can be diverted to the water bowers used on our planted spaces. Small works to the basement will provide additional storage space for street equipment that services the town and a small rest & changing area for the larger team delivering those extra services.
The 4 designs indicate these changes, but also provide visuals which is where you come in! We ask for honest opinions/comments from our residents which will be provided to the council at the next committee meeting where the designs are to be confirmed for tender specification.
