MAIN WORKS

In July 2015 the council secured detailed planning consent for Carnival Phase 1 and outline planning consent for Phase 2.

Since then further work has been going on to look in detail at the existing facility and talk more to local service users about the types of leisure and community facilities needed across the borough and where these should be located. This included consultation on a new Leisure Strategy and Library Offer.

Feedback from the public engagement on the Phase 2 proposals was used to help inform the planning application and will help guide further discussions around the detailed designs and layout of the library and public areas.  

A detailed planning application was submitted in summer 2017.
