Drop-in for new Plumstead Library and Leisure Centre design

Designs for the new Plumstead Library and Leisure Centre development will be on view at a drop-in session at Plumstead Library on 29 June.

The Plumstead Urban Framework, completed in January 2016, details the Council’s ambitious actions to deliver renewal and regeneration in the Plumstead area. The centrepiece to the Framework is the redevelopment of the Grade II Listed Plumstead library building to create a new combined library, leisure, cultural and sports centre - significantly upgrading leisure facilities and services for the local community.

Come along and see the latest designs for the new Plumstead Library and Leisure Centre - members of the design team and project officers will be on hand to answer any questions.

Date: Thursday 29 June

Time: 10am – 3pm and 4pm - 8pm

Where: Plumstead Library, Plumstead High Street, London SE18 1JL

Councillor Danny Thorpe, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Sustainability, said: “The Council has made a clear commitment to invest in Plumstead and we have plans to transform and reconnect this important town centre, with a series of integrated projects for the area. We are investing money and working with other agencies and partners to ensure that we deliver a revitalised Plumstead, with this new library and leisure centre at its heart.

“We have consulted with residents on the designs and I am confident that these proposals will utilise the high street's full potential and create a wonderful new civic attraction.”

If you can’t get to the information stand the designs will also be available to view and comment on via the Council’s website from 29 June until 6 July – go to

There will be a final opportunity for people to comment on the final designs when they are submitted for the formal Planning application later in July.
