Have your say on creating an employment advice and support hub for young people at West Library

This consultation has ended

Start date 11 November 2020
End date 01 February 2021

We would like to discuss our plans for creating an employment advice and support hub for young people on the empty first floor at West Library with you.

We want to ensure that this exciting new project reflects the needs and hopes of local people and would like to involve as many of you as possible. Local residents have already been involved in helping to recruit the architects, Public Works Group, who will be taking the library plans forward with us. We are also meeting with and hearing from current users of the space and their input will be central to the plans we make.

This project is part of the council’s ‘We are Cally’ programme to create a fairer future for the Cally.
