Support for knocking down library

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tear down the library and start again. That was the message to councillors on Tuesday during the first day of public submissions on the future of Wellington’s Central Library.

In June, prior to public consultation, councillors voted 14-1 indicating their preference was to strengthen and upgrade the earthquake-prone building, rather than demolish and rebuild. The $200 million repair option was more expensive than a rebuild, but was preferred because it promised to be open again sooner and would retain heritage elements.
However, there was a strong backlash among some of the public who submitted, many raising concerns over the expense and uncertainty of repair work.
