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 has identified locations where no library service is needed in order to have a comprehensive and efficient network, but where ECC could support the provision of library services run by a community or partner organisation. These locations are categorised as Tier 3 in the draft strategy document – Tier 3 being locations where ECC would like community groups to run a library.
