Anger at Waltham Forest Council's decision to sell historic library

Waltham Forest Council have voted to sell an historic library building amid concerns of a "scandal".

 

Protestors who fought hard to save Wood Street Library lost the battle to save it. 



The council first announced plans to relocate the library in 2016 because it was "beyond its useful life".

 

The upkeep became expensive but this decision was met with local outrage from neighbours who wanted to keep the historic site.
