Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The space appraisal and architect’s options have now appeared online at a dedicated Highgate Library and Jacksons Lane website.
Option 4, the large library option, is pasted below (“the option study should be viewed as a series of first sketches to generate discussion”) which would suit the library but seems a very poor outcome for JL. Perhaps they'll go for option 3.
The timeline now appears to be –
It should be noted that the Highgate library building is included in Haringey's schedule of Locally Listed Buildings. This means, according to the council, 'Additional conservation considerations are given to the alteration of these buildings and the council will seek to ensure that the special character of such buildings is protected and enhanced.'
So moving the library across the road does not mean that the building can then be pulled down.
