There is good news about plans by the County Council and the private firm Kora to convert the third floor of the Central Library into a business hub.
This morning the County Council’s General Purposes Committee voted unanimously to refer the proposal back to Highways and Community Infrastructure Committee. The committee will meet on 2 June to re-consider the decision, following the formal consultation over the library services, which will now close on the 10th May.
As a result, the decision about the future of this vital library space will be subjected to greater public scrutiny, including a proper public consultation before a final decision is taken.
We will continue to campaign on this issue, and will keep residents updated as things move forward.
