Contractors have reported a four-week delay in finishing refurbishment work at Skipton Town Hall.

It's now expected to be completed at around the end of May, but the Main Hall and Museum should be operational by 1 May.

As part of a £770,000 project, Craven District Council is transforming the building into a modern facility which can host more events and activities.

Improvements include a new accessible entrance from Jerry Croft, removing the disabled lift from the front of the Town Hall and restoring the steps, installing an internal lift, new toilet facilities, a new heating system and making internal alterations to create commercial space on the ground and first floor levels.

Work was previously delayed by two weeks after the discovery of more asbestos in the existing toilet block.
