Planning permission has been granted for the multi-million pound redevelopment of Heywood Civic Centre.

The proposals will see the refurbishment of this vital community venue with a brand new extension at the front of the building, retractable seating in the auditorium and a host of other changes, including making the site more accessible and welcoming than ever before.

Architects K2 are working on the project, which is part of an £8.5 million investment into arts and culture in the borough over the next three years, thanks to Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport funding.
