Libraries and halls consultati­on resumes


Consultati­on on how community facilities operate in future across North Ayrshire is to resume.

This will mark the third stage of the comprehens­ive consultati­on, ensuring residents have a real voice in how libraries, community centres and halls deliver their services.

The proposals include the future use of Brodick Hall and Arran Library and the provision of early years classes by Brodick Nursery.

The consultati­on states: ‘North Ayrshire Council will progress discussion­s regarding a lease or a community asset transfer, building opportunit­ies around future redesign of services and nursery provision.’

The idea is to ensure these vital services continue to be delivered in communitie­s across North Ayrshire and people are now being invited to view and comment on the plans.

A major element of this consultati­on will be how to best deliver library, community centres and halls in a post-Covid world.

Due to current lockdown restrictio­ns, face-to-face consultati­on will not be possible, however, everyone will get the chance to take part. Until May 5, anyone can view and comment on the proposals at https://www.north-ayrshire.­ourview

Those who cannot access the online consultati­on can e mail communityf­acilities@ or call the council on 01294 310000 and hold ‘for all other enquiries’ and a time will be set up to call the person back and go through the consultati­on.

The phone line will be open Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm, between April 6 and May 6.

Details of the consultati­on will also be issued alongside Council Tax letters to ensure no-one misses out.
