Plans for new Library & Community Hub now submitted
Consultation runs to Friday 5th August
The County Council has now lodged a planning application for the redevelopment of Milton Road Library. The new building will replace the existing library which unfortunately has structural problems. Flats on the upper two floors will pay for the cost along with developer contributions allocated by the City Council for enhanced community facilities to be provided alongside the library on the ground floor.
Copies of the plans will be displayed in the library from 11th July. The City Council planning reference is 16/1130 and can be viewed on line
The new plans show that many of the points raised by the Friends have been taken on board particularly with reference to the library and community space on the ground floor. Please have a look at the plans. All comments should be sent to the City Council Planning Department at the Guildhall or made on line to them.
