Plan to refurbish former Woolwich library
There are tentative plans by Greenwich Council to refurbish the former Woolwich library following an intention to sell the building last year.
As of now there’s not much to go on though I did see a notification pop up on the council website. It states:
Since closing as a library the building has been in use by Greenwich Council’s Local Labour and Business organisation, or GLLaB for short.
What increased use is planned is unknown. In the current financial climate it may appear difficult to see where funds for any refurbishment could be gained, but GLLaB sees millions flowing into its coffers from new developments across the borough, as often highlighted on this site.
I’ll be keeping an eye out to see what possible new uses for the Grade II listed building can be found.
