Auction of Old Library site

Bearsted Parish Council were not informed and has not been consulted about the proposed sale of the Old Library site on Bearsted Green.


As the relocation of the library to Bearsted train station was only supposed to be a temporary measure, whilst refurbishment of the Old Library took place, we are seeking answers from Kent County Council as to what consultations took place regarding the permanent closure of this site, its sale, as well as the future of Bearsted Library.


We have written to Kent County Council requesting clarification and together with our borough councillors are seeking a delay to the auction of this site whilst investigations or the necessary consultations take place.
