Walworth Library and Southwark Heritage Centre - Stage 3

Closed 3 Dec 2019

Opened 21 Nov 2019

Results updated 14 Jan 2020



Help us design the new Library and Heritage Centre in Walworth.

Southwark Council is going to open a new library and heritage centre on the Walworth Road.

Bringing these two services together creates some great opportunities for new ways of using the facility and sharing knowledge. We want to encourage lots of new people to this unique place and inspire everyone with fascinating stories about Southwark and objects from our collections.

The new centre will support best practice in Library services, incorporating innovative display and event spaces more familiar in museums & other public buildings.

We are testing ideas about the layout of the space, how we should announce the new public facility onto Walworth Road, and how to best make the new accessible entrance distinctive.

We've taken on board your feedback from previous consultation stages and would like to hear from you on our latest plans and ideas attached.

What happens next

When we have completed the consultation we will analyse the results, if you would like to receive more information on the results please leave you email address.
