LISTED building consent has been granted for work to transform part of the Pump Rooms in Leamington into a customer service area.
Design elements for Warwick District Council’s new customer service hub requiring listed building consent were approved by the planning committee on Tuesday November 7.
This decision will allow for the installation of a door and wooden partitions to replace the metal roller shutters and will be incorporated into the design of the new customer area in the 20th century foyer section of the building.
Works at the Pump Rooms are scheduled to begin on Monday November 20 and are expected to take around three months to complete. The shop will close on Sunday November 19 and WDC continues work to find an alternative space for the artists to display and sell their collections.
Signage will be in place to guide visitors to the art gallery, cafe and library, which will remain fully open during this time.
The relocation of WDC’s face-to-face provision will follow its vacation of Riverside House in early 2024 and the transfer of the council’s principal administrative office space to Saltisford, Warwick.
Additional information on the new customer service centre can be found on WDC’s website.
