The plans address four separate initiatives:
- modifications that are necessary to permit access to the Lower Camera for those with mobility impairments;
- removal of existing restrictions on movement of books to the Upper Camera;
- creation of a consolidated service desk at the proposed South entrance to the Camera to improve readers services and security; and
- the present North entrance to become an emergency exit.
Planning permission for these changes was obtained in August 2012, but because the relocation of the entrance is a once-in-a-century event, we want to ensure that readers have an opportunity to learn about the plans and to provide comments.
The consultation period closes on Saturday 1 December 2012.
