BBC Surrey interview on libraries plans

Surrey County Council will take a decision on its libraries plans again, following a judicial review.

Earlier this month, Mr Justice Wilkie upheld a technical challenge over a decision to create 10 community-run libraries staffed by volunteers, although he did not criticise the policy itself.

With that in mind, the council has decided to bring the proposal back to a Cabinet meeting on 19 June, when it will consider all the work that has been done to develop a comprehensive training package for volunteers.

In the weeks leading up to that meeting, the council will carry out a further consultation about equalities training for volunteers at community libraries.

Listen to a BBC Surrey interview about the decision via the link below. It features Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games Helyn Clack.
