Matthew Westwood, Be First's development manager, said: "We're keen to hear views on our plans.

"We especially want to hear any ideas about the sort of community activities that could take place in the former library, before we submit a planning application."

The draft plans include renovating the library to provide a space for community services and

landscaping improvements around the site.

Be First hopes to submit a planning application to the council for consideration at the March 2020 planning committee meeting.
