- Capital Investment - Getting Building Fund, Essex, Southend & Thurrock, Less than £2m
Design in progress
Expected completion date
The scheme will see the relocation of Adult Community Learning from its current site into a refurbished Harlow Library. Harlow Library occupies a prime site in the heart of the town centre and the building is oversized and under occupied, providing a significant opportunity for redevelopment into a modern skill and learning hub for the district. Through development of new visible facilities and alignment with the courses offered by Harlow College and requirements of businesses it is envisaged that the skills levels of residents can be enhanced through courses offering training and skills required by the expanding and relocating employers to Harlow such as Public Health England and Princess Alexandra Hospital.
The project was considered by Accountability Board on 20th November 2020 and the decision was made to approve the award of £977,000 GBF funding to this project, subject to the following funding condition being met:
- Provision of written confirmation that the full funding package is in place by 9th November 2020. If this confirmation is not provided, the GBF funding will be automatically reallocated to the next project on the GBF pipeline.
Written confirmation that the full funding package to support project delivery is in place has been received and therefore this funding condition has been met.
