Suffolk Cabinet Member calls Library Pilot Groups "outsiders"
|Cllr Jane Storey|
Thank you for your e-mail. It is not easy weighing up the pro's and con's of each case. I met with Brian yesterday and, with others, we have been working on a way of assessing each case as it comes forward. Although it might seem straighforward to the outsider we have to take into account many factors.What is particularly upsetting is that many of us took a leap of faith agreeing to take part in these pilots after a hard fought campaign against the County Council's library plans. We thought we were entering into a partnership with the County Council and so to be described as "outsiders" is disappointing.
The property issues around the Debenham, Eye and Stradbroke libraries are, as I am sure you realise, quite different for each site. I know that Brian Prettyman is keen to resolve them all, as I am, so that you can progress with this Library Pilot and he will be in touch with you soon.
In addition this email was sent on 20th September and today on 13 October we are still waiting for Brian to be in touch with us "soon".
