We are proposing to significantly enhance the outdoor public space at the front of the library.
We recognise that the community values this space as one of the few of its kind in central Shenfield. But we feel it can be even better.
Our proposals include a larger seating area, which will retain the existing memorial benches. The area faces into the library, making it more functional and a greater part of the library’s day-to-day life. There will also be the potential to open up the children's library area for outdoor events.
We also understand the value many residents attach to many of the existing trees on the site. We intend to protect the healthy, mature trees and only remove any if being replaced with a more appropriate species.
Our proposals include two options for the outdoor public space. We’d like to know which you prefer.
