Community members and library users are being invited to review and endorse the revised plans for the new library/meeting facility to be built in Batlow.

Council Director Assets & Infrastructure Matt Christensen said the revisions reflected the community’s feedback gathered from consultation undertaken in April this year.

“During the exhibition of the original draft plan we heard a range of perspectives from the community, the majority of whom wanted a façade that was in better keeping with the adjourning buildings, rear access car parking and better connectivity with the Literary Institute,” Mr Christensen said.

The revised plan includes a covered front veranda, a pitched roof, rear accessible car parking and a modified building façade.

“We have taken into account the key themes generated from the community consultation and are confident the changes we’ve made best represent what we heard and is possible,” Mr Christensen said

The new $1 million library facility, proudly funded by the NSW Government, will benefit a range of Batlow residents and visitors including children and youth, library users with mobility impairments, community groups, seasonal workers, library internet users, and users of the Literary Institute hall.

Community members and interested parties are encouraged to review the revised plans and give feedback at until the 19 August 2018.
