Collecting views - Blake Gardens and Bridgwater Library


Staff from Sedgemoor District Council; Somerset Libraries, Somerset County Council and Bridgwater Town Council are collecting views and ideas about possible developments to enhance Bridgwater library and the adjoining Blake Gardens. The plan is to raise the profile of the Gardens and the library as a hub for the community - with a range of activities, events and a safe, trusted place to relax, interact and explore new ideas. 03/07/18

A display will be running from July 3rd until July 23rd in Bridgwater library, including artists' impressions and plans of how the library and gardens might look and members of the community are encouraged to give their ideas and comments via a simple feedback questionnaire. A special questionnaire has also been designed for children.

Once all the ideas and comments have been collected, a bid for external funding will be submitted at the end of July.  The result of the funding bid will be announced later in the year and if successful, there will have to be appropriate planning and Listed Building consents.  Further design details and information will be given out as and when available.
