DCC To Explore Chief Post Office OpportunityJuly 23, 2009 at 9:32 am | Posted in City Library, Library_News | 5 Comments
An opportunity to revitalise the Exchange area in Lower Princes Street and explore the possible relocation of the central Moray Place Library is behind the DCC’s confirmed interest in the old Chief Post Office building.
The DCC has signed a joint venture feasibility agreement with the building’s present owners, South Canterbury Finance, to investigate the CPO’s potential.
The study, which is expected to take up to six months to complete, will test the suitability of the building and the site against the demand for new premises for the Library and its future requirements, and has the full support of the Library’s management. It will also identify and evaluate possible uses for the current Library building.
