Help Us Shape the Future
Wandsworth Council are currently building a new state of the art Northcote Library situated on Northcote Road.
The new library will be housed in a modern three storey building set back from Northcote Road that will offer a dedicated and improved children’s section complete with buggy parking space, enlarged study accommodation, workspace for local entrepreneurs, self-serve kiosks for book loans, upgraded computer and digital learning areas, an events space and restroom facilities.
Once built the new library will provide 848 square metres of usable floor space compared with the existing 728 sqm.
Alongside the new library will be a new community centre for use by local groups and a nursery. Both will be built on land currently occupied by eight council-owned garages adjoining Staplehurst Court and the Chatham Hall community space.
Chatham Hall was built in the 1950s and is showing signs of its age. It will be replaced with a modernised equivalent that will provide better kitchen and toilet facilities, while also benefiting from its own dedicated outdoor courtyard amenity space for educational, leisure and recreational use.
