Caterham Hill Library to have Makeover

Plans to redevelop the Caterham Hill Library building and to add other essential services have been announced.

The new building will also see the introduction of a Family Centre which will offer services for children up to the age of 11.

It will also become the venue for health visiting, providing advice for breast feeding, supporting new parents and young people seeking care leavers’ accommodation.

Mary Lewis, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People & Families at Surrey County Council (SCC) said: “The new care leavers’ accommodation will provide an essential service for vulnerable young people.

“By providing them with a safe and stable home, we can help them get the best start to building their lives after care and enable them to establish themselves within the community.”
The £5.6m redevelopment will be funded by the SCC Capital programme.

Construction is expected to begin next summer with the work to be completed in April 2022.

A temporary structure will be put in place during the redevelopment, so users can still access library services.
