Burton Library Consultation

Like many other places, businesses in Burton-on-Trent have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. Now we have the opportunity to reshape the library offer to better meet people’s needs and kickstart a revitalisation of the town centre.  

As one of seven inter-dependent projects planned to boost the economy, we think our proposals to update and relocate the library to the Market Hall would lead to considerable added value, including: 

  • supporting the improvement and preservation of the historic Market Hall for future generations, investing in the building and making sensitive alterations

  • increasing footfall into the town centre to grow and attract more businesses

  • allow regeneration of the existing library site to support more visitor, retail and hospitality growth on the waterfront (to be taken forward through a future public consultation implemented by East Staffordshire Borough Council)

  • incorporate a space to support business in the new library

  • save tax payers’ money by co-locating County Council staff into one building.

From Monday 19 July until Friday 10 September, everyone had the opportunity to participate in a public consultation to put forward their views about the proposed relocation,  the current library offer and how it could be improved. 

The results of the consultation will form part of a more detailed business case that will be considered by Staffordshire County Council, East Staffordshire Borough Council and Burton Town Deal Board next year, before Central government makes the final decision in March 2022.   

Do you have a question about the consultation that is not covered in the Frequently Asked Questions?  Please email burtonlibraryconsultation@staffordshire.gov.uk and we will respond as soon as possible.
