Suffolk Libraries needs your views on proposed plans to extend Thurston Library

Suffolk Libraries is working with Suffolk County Council and the Friends of Thurston Library on plans to extend and improve Thurston Library.

The extension would be funded using money from local housing developments which is available to make improvements to the infrastructure of public services through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The results of this survey will become part of the application bid into the CIL funding pot.

The plans involve building an extension to the library on Norton Road to create more space. Suffolk Libraries is carrying out a public consultation on the plans to find out what people think and how the library can meet the needs of a growing community in the future.

The plans can be viewed online using the links below or on display boards in the library from 9 March.

The survey will run from 9-23 March and can be completed online.

Bruce Leeke, Chief Executive of Suffolk Libraries, said:

“We’re excited to be sharing these plans with the local community and would encourage everyone to take a look and share their views on how we can expand and develop the library to meet the needs of local people.

Richard Fawcett, Chair of Thurston Library Friends group added:

“Thurston is a growing community and by expanding the library space we hope it can be even more of a vital hub for the many new families moving to the area.”
