Sherwood Library


Sherwood Library Notices

Sherwood library was closed following a review of the building’s ceiling and alcove plaster. The current buildings are in a poor state of repair and the library no longer meets the standards expected by library users.

Following this closure, details to build a new Sherwood Library were revealed, contracts have been signed with a developer, which will see the whole site redeveloped. The Sherwood Library site, located on Spondon Street, is currently owned by Nottingham City Council, and includes former social services offices, a car park and three retail units, as well as the existing library.

Subject to obtaining planning approval, Hockley Developments expect to be on site early in 2021 to begin works.

If you have any questions or queries relating to the new Sherwood Library, or want to know how to comment on the development please see the FAQ sheet.
