Totnes councillors eyeing up air-conditioning for Civic Hall

Councillors in the Devon town are considering hiring air-conditioning units for major town events

Town councillors in the South Devon market town of Totnes are looking to hire air-conditioning units for the Civic Hall as there is currently no way to cool the building down during major events.

Totnes Civic Hall has received important renovation and modernisation work in recent years, as town councillors aim to increase the attractiveness of the venue for those wishing to hire it for special occasions.

Now councillors are eyeing up the possibility of hiring air-conditioning units for the venue, as there is currently no cooling technology installed throughout the building, which can become hot and stuffy during large events and ceremonies.

The Civic Hall can be hired by individuals and groups for weddings, parties, meetings, seminars, community events, and even for music concerts. At present, the town council charges £12.50 per hour for the renting of the hall, but they are looking to reduce this fee to £10 for non-profit organisations, including schools.

The windows must remain closed in the Civic Hall even when it is host to large events, as regulations for the control of noise pollution prevent them from being opened.

Catherine Marlton, deputy town clerk, commented: “It can get very hot and we have to keep the windows closed because of the sound levels.”

Town council officers have been asked to investigate the costs involved in hiring air-conditioning units for the Civic Hall for occasions when cooling equipment is necessary. The extra cost involved would be reflected in the hiring price, according to Ms Marlton.
