Ferrier Library will not be rebuilt admits Greenwich Council

Kidbrooke's only library will be closed for demolition this year and there are no plans to rebuild it, councillors and developers admitted last night.

Speaking at a meeting with local residents, representatives of Berkeley Homes and Greenwich Council said that the Ferrier library will close by October this year.

They admitted that there no plans for a replacement, but said that the option of having new library facilities within another community building had been "neither ruled in or out."

The news will be a big disappointment to those who still use the library and the employees who had hoped that a new library was being considered.

Yesterday, neighbouring Lewisham Council announced the closure of another local library in Blackheath Village along with four other libraries in the borough.

Three years ago Greenwich Council also accidentally announced plans to close four libraries in Greenwich borough.

So far only the closure of Ferrier Library has been confirmed.
