The following update has been provided by Cllr Stephen Mann, in response to questions that arose at our meeting in Addiscombe.
Cllr Mann advises,
“Work is progressing well on the library and hoardings went up last week.
We are awaiting the feedback of a condition survey before progressing full steam ahead.
Friends of Ashburton Park (FOAP) are working very hard in dealing with the park overall and liaising about uses etc. Do keep track of their Facebook and website for their updates.”

In regards to the consultation on the future use of this building, Cllr Mann has advised that there are still plans for this consultation to take place but there is nothing confirmed at this stage.
We hope to have an update shortly from Cllr Maddie Goulder, on the other point raised at this meeting.
