Plan for Libraries

The Plan for Libraries consultation is now closed. Thank you for taking part. 

All feedback is now being processed and analysed ahead of a scrutiny review of the proposals in May.

A report outlining the consultation findings will be published as part of the review, where a cross-party panel of councillors will discuss the future of the service with members of the public, partner agencies and other councillors.

Recommendations from the review will help to inform the final Plan for Libraries, which will be considered by Full Council in early July.
