Move to the Fire Station


Library/Fire Station co-location

Wheathampstead Library plans to move into the same building as the Fire Station in Marford Road.  A public exhibition of current town planning application proposals relating to the co-location of Wheathampstead Fire Station and Wheathampstead Library was held on 22nd June 2017.

Work began late in 2018 and we understand that the project to construct the new library is on target. The contractors should be handing over the building in March, and following the fit out we can expect to move in April or early May. We are currently having discussions about layout and equipment. There will need to be a closure for at least a week during the removal period. We agreed that we should have a ‘new library launch’ probably in May.

In the meantime please email us if you would like to know more about the current position.
