I found this on the Redditch Labour Facebook page:
Redditch Labour Party are pleased to see some information on the contents of the Town Deal bid - the maximum amount which can be granted is £25 million, and we hope that Redditch is successful in achieving that maximum amount.
The bid consists of the following proposals.
πŸ”˜ £8.5m to improve the train station area with a 2 storey building, open space and improved car parking, taxi rank and bus service area.
πŸ”˜ £8m for digital support to businesses including a 5G test bed and office / workshop space.
πŸ”˜ £4.1m to demolish the library building to create a public square. (NOTE - no information on a new location for the library if this is approved.)
πŸ”˜ £3m to improve Unicorn Hill, Church Green and Evesham Walk - including “street furniture” and “waymarking.”
πŸ”˜ £1.1m to improve eco projects mostly electric charging points. (This is across residential areas and Abbey Stadium as well as in the town centre.) 
£4.1 million needed to demolish our library?????
Our Library houses the Job Centre, computers, and clubs.
It is our community hub!
Going to replace it with a public square?????
No news where it is going to go in the future!
It's been there for over 40 years!!!
I let rip on the Labour facebook and Conservative facebook telling it is a stupid mistake. No thoughts no planning.....
We carried on watching 
With my Sleep Tea.
Going to try out my new boxes of grey tomorrow↓
We are expecting Storm Christoph tomorrow!
Will I need to row a boat to get the newspaper on Hump Day 🐫
