Relocation of Willesden Bookshop in proposed Cultural Centre

We the undersigned petition the council to to include retail space for the Willesden Bookshop in the proposed Willesden Green Cultural Centre which is to replace the Willesden Green Library Centre.

Plans for the new centre make provision for a cafe so why should there be no space for a bookshop? Alongside any proposed café this would provide a similar mix on a smaller scale to that provided at the South Bank Centre.

The Willesden Bookshop is:

A successful small business with an excellent record in serving the needs of the local community and providing employment
An invaluable resource and support to local schools with nationally recognised expertise in catering for a diverse pupil population
A positive cultural force in the borough through its encouragement of local authors and events such as Black History Month

Able to enrich activities at the Cultural Centre, linking its stock with particular events and reflecting the diversity of the local community.

An exemplary long-term tenant of Brent Council.
