Have your say on proposed relocation of Gloucester Library

Residents are being asked to provide feedback on a proposal to move Gloucester Library from Brunswick Road to the former Debenhams building, which is being transformed into University of Gloucestershire's new campus in the centre of the city.

The current building, which has been home to the library since 1900, is in a declining condition requiring significant investment to improve access and bring the library up to a modern and more appealing standard.

It is hoped that by moving to new facilities this will greatly improve the library offer, significantly improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon and ongoing heating costs.

There is also the potential to link services up with the university and other partners using a model that has been successful in other counties.

Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member for libraries at Gloucestershire County Council, said: "By linking up with the University of Gloucestershire and moving Gloucester Library to the centre of the city, we will greatly improve our facilities, our appeal to users and support the economy by relocating our innovation lab.

We really want to hear what you think of these exciting plans, so please let us know by taking part in the survey."
