Subject: Libraries Needs Assessment update
Following a question to Executive by Cllr Macro regarding the Library Needs Assessment drop-in sessions, I took the opportunity to outline the process now that these sessions have concluded, this is set out below.
1)The outcome of the assessment will be known shortly and will be made public.
2) A report will then be prepared for Executive recommending that a six week consultation period takes place to gather the views of residents of West Berkshire in accordance with our consultation arrangements.
3) At the conclusion of the consultation process and following a thorough assessment of the responses the matter will be reported to full Council for a final decision as it is considered that the outcomes may be significant in terms of effects on communities in the district as well as in terms of budgetary implications.
A press release to this effect is also being issued.
Regards – Hilary
