Waltham Forest Council is to  make a decsion on plans to relocate three libraries.

The proposals would apply to Hale End Library, in Castle Avenue, Highams Park; Higham Hill Library, in North Countess Road, Walthamstow; and Wood Street Library, in Forest Road, Walthamstow.

In addition, Lea Bridge Library, in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton, will be refurbished.

The council says the plan is part of its commitment to ensure everybody in the borough lives within one-and-a-half miles of a library.

Higham Hill Library was classed as being beyond its useful life in 2011.

The council said Wood Street Library has also been assessed as beyond its useful life and has significant maintenance costs.

It is proposed it would be relocated further down Wood Street.

The council has not yet released details of where the other libraries would be relocated to.

A decision on the plans is due to be made at a meeting of Waltham Forest Council's c Cabinet on Tuesday July 12.

They will then be put forward for a public consultation.
