Central Hall Completed Refurbishment
The iconic Central Hall in Keighley has been opened, following seven years of support by Pulse Regeneration to develop the refurbishment proposals to bring the disused Methodist Hall back into active use for the community.
Support provided for our client Keighley & Ilkley Voluntary and Community Action (KIVCA), has included initial research, local consultation, feasibility testing, business and financial planning, help with fundraising, and assistance in securing the asset transfer of the building from the City of Bradford MDC. Pulse also assembled a full project team including partners Hodson Architects, in order to deliver the project on the ground.
Central Hall now provides a successful, high quality, healthy eating café, large multi-purpose hall that holds up to 200 people, meeting rooms, enterprise space, and hosts KIVCA and Citizens Advice Bureau. Contributing to the regeneration of Keighley, the building is open to all ages, and is already providing much needed benefits to the local community including improved facilities and advice services.
The launch event was attended by Pulse Regeneration Managing Director Chris Hart and Senior Regeneration Consultant Sarah Lewis, which saw the building opened by CBMDC Leader Cllr. Ian Greenwood and KIVCA Chief Officer, Caroline Schwaller.
