Bromley Central library closure and relocation: Council seek feedback

Former Top Shop unit will become main borough library

Bromley Council are seeking feedback on plans to close the existing Central Library and move into a former Top Shop unit.

The decision to move was announced in October 2023 with the library moving from its current site in a building shared with the Churchill Theatre.

A survey is running until 15th July on proposals and what users would like to see.

Theatre demolition

The current building including the Churchill Theatre is set for demolition.

Bromley Council have stated the 1970s structure is “reaching the end of its life”. They state a new theatre will be built on site.

Moving the library is put at £15.5 million with an expected opening in spring 2026.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
