The new design responds to the updated brief to integrate the local library into the Brindley. The Brindley Theatre enhancement will see an extension to current facilities to create a larger cafe-restaurant and a welcoming community space on Brindley Green. Under the latest plans, the library currently located at Granville Street will be relocated and integrated in to The Brindley building. It is envisaged the integration of the library will further enhance facilities and attract new visitors.

The designs were presented to the Runcorn Town Deal Board at their recent meeting and the plans were well received by the Board.

Talking about the designs, Cllr Paul Nolan, portfolio holder for Employment, Learning and Skills, and Community said: “Since it opened its doors in 2004, The Brindley has become a much-loved venue and landmark for Runcorn, drawing high-profile national and international performers who attract visitors from across the region and beyond.

“These designs, which complement the iconic design of the current building, will see The Brindley welcoming even more people and being the catalyst to creating a flourishing cultural hub that will be a boost to the town centre economy.”

Ward Councillor and member of the Runcorn Town Deal Board, Cllr Norman Plumpton-Walsh, added: “The proposed accessible Brindley Green will offer new open spaces for local people to enjoy right in the heart of the town centre. In addition, we hope that independent businesses on the high street will benefit from the increased volumes of visitors enjoying the enhanced facilities.”

The Brindley Enhancement project is one of a number of projects Ellis Williams is involved with as part of the ‘Reconnecting Runcorn’ Town Investment Plan, aimed at making Runcorn a prime location.
