Step forward for exciting new Worthing Community Hub
Sunday, 09 June 2019 10:50

Exciting plans for Worthing Community Hub have taken a step forward today.

Funding has been agreed to create a vibrant public space for residents to access a range of services in the town.

£3 million will be used to redesign Worthing Library into a hub where children and family services, registration services and library services will be based.

The council’s community hubs project aims to future proof services while creating dynamic engaging spaces for the local community.
Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “I’m delighted that this incredibly exciting and ambitious project has got the go ahead.

“This is very good news for Worthing and its residents. It will create a public space to bring a range of services under one roof, giving easier access in one place. Everyone loves their local library. Reconfiguring to a Community Hub will offer so much more to many users, young and old alike, so I am really looking forward to seeing the new hub take shape.”

Hundreds of Worthing residents had their say in the early concept design for the hub last summer. The next step is to appoint a contractor and draw up final designs.

The plan is for the new community hub to be ready to open in the summer of 2020.  In order to complete the work, the Library in Richmond Road will close for approximately six months. During the work, there will be alternative library service provision which will be announced shortly.
