The community is being asked to suggest alternative and sustainable community or public uses for the current Halswell Library building after it closes on 3 October 2015.
The Riccarton-Wigram Community Board is inviting community proposals about possible alternative uses for the Halswell Library building, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 2 October 2015.
The Council is currently the building's owner. However, there is no ongoing budget to run, operate or maintain the Halswell Library building. Community proposals will need a sound and sustainable business case that is supported by a Council business unit.
If an alternative community, Council or public works use cannot be found it is likely that we will eventually sell the building on the open market.
