Church Stretton Library –another consultation!

 

Shropshire Council received over 500 responses from residents to the consultation on the Church Stretton library service earlier this summer.

 

Residents said their top 3 priorities were:

 

Voted as Very Important by:

 

1: The library is accessible for all those wishing to use the facility 90.19% of residents
2 The library is located in a town centre location

 

84.34% of residents
3 The library offers a safe environment to all users 77.36% of residents

 

 

Shropshire Council have now published draft documents describing the new library service and the criteria they will use to select an organisation to manage this service.

They are running a further consultation from August 21st to 18th September

to ask residents if the draft documents they have drawn up reflect what people said.

This is not a user – friendly questionnaire and to respond one has to first read and cross reference:

 

  • The full results of the consultation
  • Proposed tender questions
  • Proposed tender scoring scheme
  • The Church Stretton Library Service Specification

 

This is not for the faint hearted!!

 

You can find all the above documents and how to respond to this consultation at http://new.shropshire.gov.uk/get-involved/selection-criteria-for-the-appointment-of-a-new-organisation-to-manage-library-services-in-church-stretton/

 

Paper copies are also available at the following locations: the library, leisure centre, Mayfair Health and Well-Being Centre, and Church Stretton Town Council’s office.

 

Top Tip: Keep the top 3 priorities people voted for in mind when reading these documents and keep asking yourself does the document reflect these priorities!!

 

 NB As Church Stretton Library Support Group will be submitting a bid to run the library in its current setting it would be inappropriate for us to let people know our views on these documents.
