After a year of fake news it appears the original story that Wood Street Library is to move to the new Marlowe Road estate is true. 3 new shop units are to be acquired by the council to house a new library and the old one sold for £2.6m to fund the move and the refurbishment of Lea Bridge Library. It is wrong to sell off this community iconic building, a gateway into Wood Street, for a cheap modern indistinguishable building. It is another defeat for the public who have opposed the sell off of the iconic building. Why should a primary school be subjected to another building site on its doorstep?
The Cabinet decides at its meeting on the 17th July.
