Bromley Museum's planned modernisation has taken a step forward with the appointment of an architect and design team.
The project, known as the Priory Revisited, will now be overseen by Caroe Architecture Ltd who will design the museum’s extension and create an arts and heritage hub at the Orpington site.
The company will support a second stage application for grant funding worth £1.794million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, having already been awarded £186,300.
Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “We are excited to see the project moving ahead towards transforming the museum into an arts and heritage destination of choice with the architects starting work.
“This coincides with the start of our consultation to find out more about our users and ensure we encourage more visitors to enjoy the borough’s rich heritage.”
Proposed improvements to the site include repairs to the Grade II listed building, better exhibition spaces and a cafe.
