Earlier this year, we welcomed an announcement by Welsh Government that Wrexham Museum was the preferred option to house a Welsh national football museum.
The announcement was made in May by Dafydd Elis Thomas AM, the Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism.
Since then, we’ve taken a look at some of the changes that might be needed at Wrexham Museum so it can house the national football collection.
Some extension work would be required to make sure the museum can welcome an estimated influx of more than 80,000 visitors per year.
With that in mind, we’re taking a look at what’s needed in order to take the work to the next stage, lining up with the phases of work outlined by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
We’re looking at taking the plans to RIBA Stage 3, meaning we’ll be looking to appoint a design team of specialist architects and designers, who will work with us and our partners over the next few months to develop detailed designs for what the museum will look like, both inside and out.
A report on what we need to do next will be presented by Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety to members of our Executive Board on Tuesday, July 9.
