As we continue to modernise our buildings and workforce one of our town centre buildings, The Old Library, is now under used and we’re looking for expressions of interest for a new occupier to develop the building.

Currently used by the Councils ICT department, the property offers a unique opportunity for a new occupier to breathe fresh life into the property whilst having due regard to its Grade 2 listed status.

Following a competitive tendering exercise, commercial property agents Legat Owen have been appointed to explore alternative uses for the building and to assess the level of commercial demand.

A preliminary marketing exercise will be undertaken between January and March 2023 and interested parties should contact Legat Owen on 01244 408 200.

The attractive city centre building was originally built in 1907 with money donated by the Scottish businessman and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and was a popular library until the new one on Llwyn Isaf opened in 1971.

When it comes to the cost of living, making sure you claim all the help and support you’re entitled to could make a huge difference.
