Both Carnegie and Minet will proceed as healthy living centres, in partnership with Greenwich Leisure Limited, the social enterprise which runs Lambeth’s leisure centres. For Minet, the council is ensuring that we can maintain the building and the archives, alongside a reduced neighbourhood library service.
At Carnegie, the council has been working with the Community Trust, local councillors and residents to ensure that the proposed healthy living centre works for users. GLL will run a gym alongside community space and a neighbourhood library service and the council will continue to work with the community to encourage greater ownership of this much valued local asset.
