Horsham Rural City Council commissioned a Cultural Facilities Review in 2009 to look at the condition of existing facilities, the needs of the community and determine the effective way to provide high-quality cultural facilities for Horsham.
The review determined the most effective way would be to redevelop the Horsham Town Hall. Community consultations, architectural design and development, planning processes and heritage registration took place between 2009 and early 2014 when construction commenced.
The redevelopment was finally completed in January 2016 at a final cost of $19.8 million. The final construction saw the emergence of The Horsham Town Hall complex, comprising the original Town Hall, a 500 seat Theatre, 265 seat Wesley PAC and of course The Regional Art Gallery.
The redevelopment of the Horsham Town Hall and Horsham Regional Art Gallery is the largest infrastructure project ever embarked upon by Horsham Rural City Council
