Savills UK appointed as estate agent to market City Hall

Wiltshire Council has confirmed the specialist company that will market City Hall to prospective organisations.

The council has procured expert real estate company Savills to market City Hall on its behalf for a long lease.

Savills UK will support the council in identifying organisations best suited to enter a lease in excess of 25 years.

A stipulation for prospective operators is that the venue remains as an entertainment venue. Should appropriate operators be recommended and one appointed after this process they would be responsible for the running of the venue, but the council would retain overall ownership.

Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of the council, said: “We’re pleased to be working with Savills UK on this project, and their expertise over the next few months will prove vital as we look to secure a provider to take City Hall into a new era on our behalf.

“We’ll be in regular contact with them throughout this process and will provide further updates when we can.

“As we’ve stated all throughout this work, we want City Hall to be a thriving entertainment venue that complements the city, and we look forward to working with Savills UK to help identify a provider that shares this vision.”
