Preston Community Library issues statement on redevelopment of the site

The proposed new building

As of this morning there are 70 comments on the Brent Council Planning Portal for this development all of which object to the proposed new building which contains a community library space as well as 12 'affordable' flats in a 2 to 4 storey building.

A wider question is whether the community library can survive if the plans do not go through. Brent Council has a policy of realising the value of its property through development but in this case has not chosen to build flats at market prices but instead to address the need for more local housing at affordable levels.
