Share your views on The Coro

People are being asked to share their views on the preferred option for Ulverston’s library services and The Coro.

A consultation has been launched asking for feedback on proposals that would see considerable investment in The Coro to create an enhanced and expanded library – including new children’s library and community activity spaces – along with re-modelling of The Coro to include a new café and more flexible spaces for community use.

Westmorland and Furness Council has worked with K2 Architects and WSP to explore a range of options for protecting, enhancing and revitalising The Coro and library services in Ulverston. In total, eight options have been analysed, with a preferred option to focus on cultural, learning and creative arts in a single destination. Layout changes would include re-locating office spaces and the upstairs bar and kitchen to enable an expanded library on the first floor, also creating new flexible community spaces on both the ground and first floors, accessible toilet facilities on the ground and first floors and a new café bar area for both library and venue users.

The upgrade would benefit library users and the wider Ulverston community and improve the long-term sustainability of The Coro.
