Library closure threat to be discussed at council meeting
PUBLISHED: 11:00 13 April 2018
The future of a village library will be discussed at a meeting later this month.
Long Ashton Parish Council will be joined by a representative from North Somerset Council who will discuss the options for the village’s library.
The meeting will also give residents the opportunity to ask their council questions about the running of the parish and the consultation for the library which is about to take place.
The Times revealed in February the council’s plans to close library buildings in Clevedon, Long Ashton and Nailsea, in a bid to save an estimated £140,000.
Long Ashton may be left with only a mobile service, while Nailsea and Clevedon’s library service is earmarked to be relocated to smaller premises. Locations have not been publicly identified at this stage.
The annual report from the planning, highways and finance committees will also be read.
The meeting will be held in the village hall, in Keedwell Hill, on April 23 at 7.30pm.
