Work started on the new development in October 2018 and should be complete and open in summer 2020.
What has been happening?
Chamber Road from Waterdale to the entrance to Chamber Road Car Park will be closed during the works. The car park remains open and is accessible from College Road.
Scaffolding started going up in late November 2018. This was to allow the wings of the former girls school to be safely taken down. These works started in early January.
The iconic central frontage will be retained and carefully restored so it becomes the focal point of the new library and museum.
