Detailed structural survey work continues in project to restore Northwich library
Cheshire West and Chester Council is progressing in its plans to renovate the historic Northwich Library building.
Since the building closed in August, surveys and testing have begun with more in-depth investigations taking place in the coming weeks as part of a phased approach to restore it and make it fit for future generations of library users.
Residents will see new scaffolding being put up to stabilise the building this month in preparation for a full refurbishment of the building in the next phase of the project.
A new temporary home for library services and events in Northwich will be identified for the duration of the refurbishment work and a decision on location will be confirmed in October.
Councillor Louise Gittins, leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, said:
Library services with extended opening hours are currently operating at Sandiway, Barnton and Weaverham libraries and loans from Northwich are being extended to the end of October. Scheduled events have moved to new locations. For details visit: Northwich Library
