North Weald Bassett Parish Council


Essex Council Council (ECC) will soon begin its consultation on its proposed strategy for the provision of library services in Essex over the next five years, from 2019/20 to 2023/24.   A  draft version of the strategy will be published for public consultation which will run from 29 November 2018 to 20 February 2019.

ECC is proposing placing library services into four tiers based on needs across the county and closing libraries where they are not required, while still providing a comprehensive library service through the network, supported by eLibrary and mobile and home library services.  North Weald Library is one of the libraries placed in Tier 4, and as such identified as one of the libraries that will close.
