Planning Officers, Brent Council
We the undersigned petition the council to object to the proposed development of Kensal Rise Library which will put six flats in the building, with no viable space for a proper community space.

Sincerely,

      Flats in the building are not necessary. This is even more pertinent in the current climate where budgets are being cut and educational activities outside of schools are becoming more limited.

      The library needs to retain its use solely as a library! No flats.

      This is an important local community resource and considering the building's rich history, it should remain one. Flats in the building are not necessary. This is even more pertinent in current climate where budgets are being cut and educational activities outside of schools are becoming more limited. And finally I'm sick of my tax being misused!

      I am not only an avid reader but work in the publishing profession as a literary agent. My whole career stems from visiting my local library weekly with my mother as a child. I also believe firmly in the value of a library as a community space for learning and development.
