Public to be consulted on plans for Olton library renovation

OLTON library is set to be renovated and Solihull Council is seeking public views.

The council wants to make the library a more appealing and inviting space for local people, groups and visitors.

Library users and local residents can see draft plans for the interior and exterior of Olton Library from Monday (July 15) to Saturday July 27 in the library reception area.

Library staff will be on hand to talk to residents and users about the plans, what the new layout could look like, the furniture and group meeting spaces.

Two drop-in sessions have also been organised for Monday, July 15, from 4pm until 6pm and on Saturday, July 27, from 10am until 1pm.

Library staff will be on hand to discuss plans for how the new look library can accommodate group meetings and other activities or services.

If the proposed works are supported by residents and library users an application will be submitted to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) scheme for consideration in August.

The council’s cabinet member for stronger and safer communities Coun Alison Rolf said: “The refurbishment of Olton Library will give residents and visitors a brilliant new space.

“We want to use this opportunity to provide the best facility possible and would love to hear people’s views to help us deliver just that.

“I’d urge people to take this opportunity to get involved and help shape the places they use.”
