Harold Hill Library Consultation

Residents are being invited to Harold Hill Library to see and review the proposed plans for the new state-of-the-art library which forms a key part of the Harold Hill Ambitions Programme.

Public consultation on the plans begins on Tuesday (30 April) at the current Harold Hill library, based on Hilldene Avenue. Residents and visitors will have the chance to see the plans and give their feedback and suggestions for change.

The architects who have developed the plans will be present from 4pm to 6pm and will be available to answer any technical questions about the building designs. The plans will be out for people to see for 10 days until Thursday 9 May, after which, all feedback will be considered and where possible incorporated into the design. Based in the eastern arcade of the Hilldene shopping centre, off Farnham Road, the new library will be significantly bigger than the existing 1950s building and will offer considerably improved facilities.

The project demonstrates the Council’s commitment to keeping and continuing to improve cultural facilities in the borough. The library is one of the improvements funded from the sale of land at Gooshays, subject to planning procedures.

Councillor Curtin, Cabinet Member for Culture, Towns and Communities, said: “This is an important opportunity for people to come along and have their say about the new library and I’d encourage all in the area to come along and take the time to look at the plans and give their feedback.”
