March Update - Agreement to be signed.
At a Trustees’ meeting of the Friends of Kensal Rise Library, on Thursday 20th March, it was agreed to sign an agreement, in good faith, with both All Souls College, Oxford, and Andrew Gillick of Kensal Properties Ltd.
The agreement means that we will publicly support the D1 aspect of the proposed development of the library building: namely, the provision of the D1 space.
In return, we trust the agreement will ensure that we, as the named preferred tenants of both the College and the developer, will be the operators of a community library in the space.
This is the fourth year of the campaign to Save Kensal Rise Library. Our intention has always been to make sure there is a library in the Kensal Rise Library Building. In this, we have had the support of the community - and beyond.
We have greatly valued and respected this support over the years; we now ask that the community continues to maintain its faith and trust in FKRL.
For, having seriously considered alternatives, we have not taken lightly the decision to enter into the agreement.
However, we think it is the best chance we have of ensuring that a library continues to function in the building for the community of Kensal Rise and Kensal Green.
The Save Kensal Rise Library campaign will continue until this objective is achieved.
