Shire Hall In Chelmsford Needs Your Say…


Essex County Council are asking members of the public to have their say on the future of the Shire Hall, which is situated at the top end of Chelmsford High Street, But you only have a week left to have your say.

The Council are closing the consultation on what people would like to see at the landmark, on February 15.Shire Hall Chelmsford

The building, which has been standing for more than 200 years, has been empty since April 2012, when Her Majesty’s Court Service moved out.

Back in December, it had to be closed after there were structural problems, and  maintenance work still being carried out now.

Mr Dick Madden, who is the chairman of the Shire Hall Reference Group, said he hoped the state of the building does not stop residents from having their say.

The county councillor said: “Shire Hall is over 200 years old and it’s not uncommon for historic buildings like this to need some extra care and attention. I want to reassure everyone the recent temporarily closure will not disrupt our progress with the consultation or our overall aim to find a use for this much-loved building.”
