Councillors respond to library questions

In response to questions from the Glossop Gazette about a letter to residents informing them that Victoria Hall is no longer a viable site for Glossop Library, Councillors Damien Greenhalgh, Ellie Wilcox and Dave Wilcox issued the following statement:

"[We] would like to answer your questions with the following statement as local elected members as distinct from on behalf of the County Council - and its official processes - or local Labour Party:
We are in an consultation exercise with the people of Glossop as local elected members.
We have a preferred option of the two we’ve have been presented with by DCC.
However, we remain completely open to what local people have to say.
We believe we have reached the end of the road negotiating with High Peak Borough Council.

The County Council doesn’t have the money to do the work the Victoria Hall needs. And our understanding is the Borough Council feels it doesn’t either.
This situation is very complicated, which is why we have called a series of public meetings/surgeries next week.
The Glossop Gazette, its readers and all Glossopdale residents are very welcome to attend any of these surgeries."

The councillors are holding four public surgeries on Monday 12 October 2015; three at the Adult Education Centre at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 15:30pm and one at Bradbury House at 18:30pm.
