"It is worse than I ever imagined possible," said former county councillor Steve Dancey.
"Just image holding a civic do in this monster?
"What would civic visitors from places like Corsham and Malmesbury - or even Westbury (now housed in the Laverton) think when presented with this building.
"What will they think when they see the Town Hall left derelict? They would think we had a dreadful uncaring town council that has totally lost the plot.
"This building is clearly inspired by Albania design and would be worthy of Tirana in the time of Hodxa or perhaps some obscure Chinese outpost close the the Sino-Soviet border.
"It is an embarrassment, a disgrace and does nothing to uplift Warminster and yet we will be paying for it for years to come.
"A complete and utter fiasco."
