The new Families and Homes Hub on Wood Street will bring together a wide range of Council services currently spread across the borough. The approximately 65 homes built next to the Hub (subject to planning) will help fund the new community facilities. The project has a target of 50 percent affordable homes prioritised for local people.

Demolition works on the site started in mid-November. The first phase of the demolition will involve a ‘soft stripping’ to remove all non-structural elements from inside and outside of the building.

This will run until Friday 18 December 2020. The second and final phase will involve the removal of the building structure and is scheduled to commence in January 2021.

The new Wood Street Library is now open

Wood Street Library

The new Wood Street Library was formally opened on Thursday 13 August 2020, 500 metres from the former site, as part of the Marlowe Road redevelopment.

The brand new, custom-built library offers a range of modern community features including meeting spaces, a high-quality café and computer access.

The new building is a key part of the Council’s £3m investment in libraries across the borough, which also includes an extension to Lea Bridge Library.
