Signature information

“We, the undersigned, call on Bristol City Council to register our concern and opposition to the proposed conversion of two lower ground floors (not open to the public and currently used for reserve stock / offices) to accommodate a new primary school.

Furthermore, we wish to record our disappointment that the Council has chosen to simply ignore the positive recommendations made over six years ago by the Libraries Select Committee, which specifically called upon the Council to recognise the unique role of Bristol's Central Library.

Background information

Bristol City Council is considering leasing space at the bottom of the central library to the new Cathedral Primary School. A decision is expected in Autumn 2013.
