Proposed changes to Central Library and Library Strategy consultation

A display featuring images and further information about proposals for Central Library to include an enterprise centre is now available online and in the entrance of the library. A public meeting about the proposals will take place on Wednesday 6 May.

Councillors agreed in April at the General Purposes Committee to refer a decision on proposals for an enterprise centre back to the Highways and Community Infrastructure Committee in June.

The Library Review consultation period has also been extended to 10 May in order to give residents more time to comment on proposals set out in a strategy for the future of the service. Responses to the consultation survey will help inform more detailed proposals for the library service, which will be taken to a Highways and Community Infrastructure Committee later in the summer. There will then be a second round of consultation.
