Council Cabinet gives the green light to negotiations for a new Broomhill Library
The Council Cabinet last week gave the go-ahead for officers to enter into negotiations with a local property developer for a scheme to relocate the Broomhill Library to Willis House on Peel St. The scheme is still at a very early stage and there are a number of hurdles to overcome, not only to verify that the building is suitable, but also that the scheme is financially sound. It would involve transferring a number of assets to the developer in return for the lease of the space in Willis House. The Broomhill Forum have convened a library subgroup to look at these options and to consult with all community stakeholders concerned.
