Hove Library closure period extended
Hove Library will be closed for a week longer than originally planned due to unforeseen delays in the building and maintenance work being carried out there.
Rather than re-opening on Monday 20 August, the library will now be closed until Tuesday 28 August.
Contractors now working on site have found that the drains and some sections of the flooring need more extensive works than previously thought.
The library also suffered a flood due to heavy rain just before the start of the closure period which delayed some of the works.
The chair of Brighton & Hove City Council’s neighbourhoods, communities & equalities committee, Councillor Emma Daniel, said: “Our contractors will be working seven days a week to complete all the work that is needed.
“We’re really sorry for this delay and we apologise to all the users of Hove Library for any inconvenience.”
