Dear Trafford Library User,
First period of consultation from today (Monday 3rd November) to Friday 12th December
Second period of consultation between January and March 2015, exact dates are to be decided
During this first period of consultation we would like to receive input from as many people as possible and to help with this a document has been compiled that gives information about each of our libraries. This document can be found online at – www.trafford.gov.uk/budget.
As well as the background information we are asking for your views around possible approaches to saving money and the criteria we should consider in making our decisions.
If you wish to talk to Councillors and Officers of the Council about the proposals there are a number of public consultation meetings taking place; there are some general meetings that focus on a number of budget proposals and details of these can be found at – http://www.trafford.gov.uk/the…/join-the-conversation.aspx. We will also be holding some public consultation meetings specifically focussed on the library service details of these can be found at – www.trafford.gov.uk/budget.
Following the first consultation period all responses will be considered and we will use these to develop more detailed proposals. These will then be subject to the second of the public consultations. The dates for this have not been set to ensure that appropriate consideration is given to the feedback received.
Thank you in advance for considering this information and providing your input.
Head of Customer Service
