Green light for Calverley Library improvements

Calverley Library and Local History Centre WILL be refurbished and transformed into a community hub, after plans submitted by Leeds council were 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 planning officer’s report approved the plans, despite four letters of concern, concluding:

“It is considered that the development complies with the aims and intentions of all relevant policies and will not cause harm to visual amenity and conservation area, nor residential amenity and highway safety.”

The proposals can be viewed in full here.
