The proposals for Cricklewood Library in Olive Road, will be on displayed at The Crown Hotel in Cricklewood Broadway, as part of a public consultation.

An application to demolish the building and replace it with 10 flats and a multi-functional 2,000 square feet community hub was withdrawn at the 11th hour in October.

Andrew Gillick, director of Chelsea-based Platinum Revolver Ltd, told the Times he was ‘coming ‘up’ with an alternative scheme following its withdrawal.

The branch was closed by Brent Council alongside Neasden Preston, Kensal Rise, Tokyngton and Barham libraries to save £1miliion in 2011.
