Robbob to provide cardboard cutouts of buildings?

Recommended Posts

Wondering when or IF the Gamble Library will reopen.Should be demolished? 

I think we should ask ROBBOB to produce from his wonderful fotos a series of huge cardboard pics of the previously and likely future demolished buildings.These could be placed around the town in memory of the wonderful decisions our town councillors have made.   

To save millions on redevelopment we could site more boards to attract visitors?These would be blank so visitors could paint a building they would like to see there.

Even better we would be able to move these boards around the town to different sites.

We could even get LEGO TO INVEST IN OUR REBUILDING?

I predict with all these cutbacks that all local libraries will eventually close and Central Library will remain open.

They wont demolish Central Library, will they?

Robbob.theyve found rot in the roof.Not Councillors rot.Unfortunately we can try to get rid of the roof rot but not councillor rot.I dont know which is more costly to treat but the roof repairs were found to be costly and time consuming.

The work in the Library is more severe than first predicted and once complete the doors will re open to the public,     you mention - - - ‘Should be demolished’ what - The Library or the Gamble?  You can’t demolish a Library with two floors above.

There will be too much of a public outcry if they decide to close all Libraries but continue to remain open on certain days

when they went into the roof of the Gamble institute they found the work was going to be more costly and extensive.

The Wesleyan church tbst used to be across from the Gamble-fotos on this site somewhere.Its wood was Pitch pine- a severe fire risk.Hence tbis beautiful building GONE!

it isn’t a roofing problem, its structural and it’s in the library If the problem was down to roofing both upper floors of Social Services would have been effected.

If it was roofing and as big as you make out scaffolding would be required.

to find out for certain try and get permission to gain access onto the top floor of Century Hse and take photos of the Gamble roof !!!!!

they found extensive dry rot in the roof as well as the structural work.all combined to extend.its only when you start removing and checking do you find exactly whats needed.Thats why people who buy old houses should get a full structural survey and not just accept what i call a drive by survey. Hence the extensions to timescale.Youcan only set a timescale andcost on what you initially expect.as you start then you may find other issues. No doubt a freedom of information enquiry may clear?
