Plans are in to convert the former east Greenwich library into a church.
The Grade II listed building has remained shut for some years since library services moved to the Greenwich Centre, and is now set to be used by the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
The sale by Greenwich Council for £1.8 million proved controversial given the group’s history with claims of homophobia and sexism.
Images show parquet flooring partially removed, though it’s not clear when this happened.
The building is in very poor shape internally and was not well maintained by Greenwich council inside or out for many years before closure. A large number of images are contained within the Heritage Statement submitted.
The plans break the building’s refurbishment down into a number of phases:
- Phase 1 to 4 – Roof Repairs and internal restoration are in Phase 5 -7
- Phase 5 – Ground Floor Hall
- Phase 6 -Basement
- Phase 7 – 1st Floor
