ECC will consider all responses to the consultation carried out between 29 November 2018 and 21 February 2019, report the outcome of public consultation and any recommended changes to the draft strategy to ECC’s Cabinet in summer 2019. If the strategy is approved, interested organisations will be provided with more information about the support ECC will offer and be invited to set up an alternative local library provision.
As part of this draft strategy, ECC will consider proposals from community or partner organisations who want to set up alternative libraries provision in these locations. ECC would not provide any ongoing management and running costs for provision in these locations but may offer support with initial set up such as donating books, if viable proposals are received.
Please complete this form (on link below, by 18 June 2019) if you represent a community organisation, or would like to form a community group, and are interested in running an alternative local library provision if the proposals for Tier 4 libraries go ahead.
