The Wembley and Willesden Observer has a story about our campaign on its web page today which includes the following:
...The Victorian Society, a national charity campaigning for the Victorian and Edwardian historic environment, has raised concerns bout the loss of the (Old Willesden Library) building, which is locally listed.LINK to Willesden and Wembley Observer story
The society has written to Brent Council urging it to rethink its proposals.
Spokesman for the society, James Hughes, said:
We want to see the council take a more imaginative and sustainable approach to this key site, as the loss of the Victorian library is unnecessary and wasteful. It should be possible to build a new cultural centre while retaining this important reminder of Willesden's heritage.
