Permission granted for performing arts centre

I am happy to announce that Monmouthshire County Council in south Wales granted planning permission for Haberdashers' Monmouth School for Girls last week. Our design team, as well as our client, is absolutely delighted.

The new performing arts centre, commissioned as part of the school’s 125 year celebration, features a recital hall, drama studios, recording suite, teaching and practise rooms, whilst respecting the site's historical significance and the listed status of the existing main school building.
