Gamble building repairs 'would cost millions'.

A MULTI-MILLION pound investment would be needed to fund the repairs to the Gamble building, the leader of St Helens Council has said.

Central Library, based in the Gamble, has remained closed since it was shut for urgent repairs in March, 2017, although council staff have remained in the offices in the upper floors.

Previously, St Helens Council said the estimated cost of refurbishing the building, in relation to the library, was PS427,895.

However, a building survey report acquired via a Freedom of Information request estimated that it would cost PS2.16m to make the repairs needed throughout the building, as well as replacing building services such as plumbing and electrics.
