What news on the library

Jane Cullen obtained permission to speak at the meeting of July 27th.   You can read her statement here.

After the meeting she commented:

“Today went fine but did not actually achieve anything beyond  me learning a lot – I delivered my statement and had to reframe it as a question which was slightly odd.
I suppose maybe a little dab of human interest but the whole thing was very passive and everything voted through.  Their whole meeting lasted less than an hour!
Learnt a lot.  I was interviewed by Radio Shropshire and was included in the item at round 5.15 today.
Cabinet is too late in the process (I expect you all knew that) but it was overall worthwhile – for the next time.”



The Report dealing with changes to library hours is being  considered by Shropshire Council on  Wed, 27th July at 12:30 pm.   The Agenda and Papers were published on 19th July and the last date for members of the public  to make written application to petition or speak (under SC Procedure Rule 14)  was 5pm, 22nd July.

The relevant papers can be found here.  The relevant pages are  53-59 (based on the page number printed at the bottom of the page or page 59 onwards by “.pdf” numbering).
