Hall to make way for new town centre car park.

A HALL is set to be demolished to make way for a new town centre car park in Stockton.

Stockton Council has drawn up proposals to knock down Corporation Hall in Prince Regent Street. The derelict building has stood empty for a number of years and is to be replaced by a 24-space car park.

A planning application by Stockton Council said: "Corporation Hall has stood vacant for several years and is currently in a state of disrepair.

"The building has out-of-date space and poor mechanical and electrical service installations and would not meet the requirements of current-day tenants seeking quality accommodation.

"Remodelling costs would be excessive and it is likely the building will continue to fall into a worse state of disrepair. Although the building has some character its design as a functional hall provides little or no enhancement to the streetscape, and it is generally of poor design and condition."

The new car park would be next to an existing one on Prince Regent Street.
