Liverpool City Council has given its backing to a £11.5m redevelopment of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

At a mayoral cabinet meeting, the council agreed a capital contribution of £2m towards the plans to refurbish the Grade II* -listed building.

The city's contribution will help Liverpool Philharmonic lever a further £9.5m of investment to complete the refurbishment of the City Council-owned building, which is the home of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and considered of the UK's premier arts and entertainment venues outside London.

The funding is, however, contingent on Liverpool Philharmonic successfully attracting this additional investment from a range of bodies including Arts Council England (ACE).

Should these applications be successful, Liverpool City Council will modernise and refresh the current building lease to Liverpool Philharmonic.

Earlier this year, Liverpool Philharmonic secured seed funding of £634,000 from ACE to appoint architects Caruso St. John to lead a design team in the first steps towards a major refurbishment of the 1939 venue.

The organisation is now building towards a further major application to ACE as well as seeking additional support from other sources in 2012 and 2013, with plans to complete all of the works to Liverpool Philharmonic Hall by 2015, the 175th anniversary year of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.
