Call to fight library move plan

Have your say

COUNTY and district councillor Chris Brewis urged Long Sutton parish councillors to fight the proposed move of the town’s library to Market House.

Speaking at the council’s open forum on Thursday, Coun Brewis said he had supplied five names to the parish council – and asked councillors to write to them.

Coun Brewis told the meeting: “The loss of what is the flagship library – certainly at this end of the county – I think would be a criminal act.”

Parish council chairman John Clarey said: “I think where the library is at the moment is a fantastic place.”

l The Spalding Guardian revealed the county council’s plans to move the library in a story on May 10.

Coun Eddy Poll, county council executive member for cultural services, said then there were no firm proposals about how things could work in the future and the council was exploring “opportunities” over the coming months.
