Award for Keighley Civic Centre project
10:00am Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
Keighley Town Council has won recognition from English Heritage for its £1 million revamp of the town’s disused former police station.
The council missed out on a bid to secure funding from English Heritage’s Angel Awards, but received a certificate signed by composer and impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber and English Heritage chief executive Dr Simon Thurley.
It recognises the council’s work to rescue the previously empty and neglected North Street building, which has now become Keighley Civic Centre. Town clerk Miggy Bailey said: “The competition was extremely tough.”
