Following Leicestershire County Council's decision to invite communities to take over the running of 36 Libraries, including Braunstone Town Library, Braunstone Town Council's preferred model to create a combined public services facility for the Library and Customer Service Shop will be explored further with the County Council in order to develop a detailed business case. This process is expected to be completed by the middle of March.
LATEST: Leicestershire County Council are currently consulting on changes to the frequency of mobile library visits and locations served by a mobile library. The consultation is taking place until April 8th 2015.
Consultation documents, including a consultation survey are available online on www.leics.gov.uk/haveyoursay/mobilelibraries . Hard copies will be available on the mobile libraries and all other libraries and also on request by contacting 0116 305 4699 or email@example.com.
Access Bridge over M1
The Town Council will inform residents as soon as it has further news on the construction of the access bridge over the M1 between Thorpe Astley and Lubbesthorpe. Exhibitions on the scheme were due to take place in December, which would provide information on how any impacts on residents will be minimised. However, we understand that the legal agreements between the County Council and contractor are still being finalised and we will advise of dates as soon as further information is received. We have been assured that construction will not commence until after the public exhibition has been held. Once the construction starts it is expected to take around 18 months to complete.
A new initiative to build individual, family and community self sufficiency to support vulnerable individuals to live in their local community without compromising their quality of life is shortly to be piloted in Braunstone Town.
