Amended plans to redevelop Willesden Green Library submitted to Brent Council
Controversial proposals have undergone a complete redesign
A controversial planning application to redevelop Willesden Green Library and replace it the Willesden Green Cultural Centre has been submitted following a complete redesign.
The application, which was submitted by developer Galliford Try, details proposals to deliver a brand new library and cultural centre that will act as the main service delivery for the south of the borough.
However, the plans initially attracted much criticism from campaigners who wanted to see the former library building, which has stood on the site since 1894 remain and had concerns about the space given away to flats.
As a result campaign group Keep Willesden Green was formed who suggested a variety of alternative proposals.

A council spokesman also claimed the new design would give more space for the new library and potentially offer up space for a bookshop.
