An old library has been razed, to make way for a new one.
Contractors have completed the demolition of Woodingdean’s old library in Warren Road.
Residents went to inspect work to prepare the ground for the new building, which will include a medical centre.
Geoffrey Bowden, chairman of the council’s economic development and culture committee, said: “When other local authorities are closing their libraries, Brighton and Hove is bucking the trend and building a facility that will be double the size of the former 50-year-old ‘temporary’ library.”
The library will feature a separate computer suite, small meeting room and an out-of-hours entrance, enabling the community to maximise use of the building.
The new medical centre will provide a larger premises for Dr Sagar and Partners, currently in The Ridgway.
During construction, a temporary library cabin located by the community centre will be open Monday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm, Thursday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 7pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.
