LATEST: County Council Cabinet on 16th June looks set to receive a recommendation from County Council Officers to reject the Town Council's proposals to retain the Library Service in Braunstone Town by combining the Library with Braunstone Civic Centre's Customer Service Shop.
Town Council Leader, Councillor Nick Brown "we do not believe [our proposals] have been given serious consideration by the [County] council's officers who have limited themselves to a one-size-fits-all approach... it would be foolish if these were rejected out of hand without further discussions, especially as there are real cash savings for all the councils involved."
