Community Hub, Library & Innovation Centre

Project Overview

Project Image

Our working name for the new Centre is - The CLIC.

Expanding School numbers at Nailsworth Primary School has meant that the building currently leased to Council to operate Prospect Library is required for classrooms.

CLIC will be located on the site of the existing Council Civic Centre as part of a co-located facility bringing together the library, gallery and digital hub, council administration and civic facilities, with the relocation of depot functions and sale of the Main North Road site (though Council will investigate an option to retain the historic Tram Barn).
