Calverley Library could become new community hub

Calverley Library and Local History Centre could be refurbished and transformed into a community hub, if plans submitted by Leeds council this week are approved.

The creation of the hub will mean the library and history centre is still housed in the Thornhill Street building, but other council services are also introduced.

Plans include:

  • A new entrance
  • New windows and doors
  • Completion of roof works
  • New public meeting room and enquiry room
  • A rendered front elevation
  • Internal re-plastering and decorating

A council report says:

“The 17 operational Community Hubs continue to develop real integration with a wide range of services and partners including police, health, credit union and the third sector and are providing better outcomes for local people, including helping more people into work.”

The proposals can be viewed in full and commented upon here.
