Bury Council’s Cabinet have released the results of the first round of consultation into the review of the library service across the Borough of Bury, including Ramsbottom.

There are currently 14 libraries across the Borough.

The proposals are to close 10 libraries and keep open 3 libraries (Bury, Ramsbottom and Prestwich) and perhaps retain a fourth (Radcliffe).

The plans, which will go out for a 12 week consultation, are set to be approved for consultation by the Cabinet at its meeting on 25 January 2017.  Details can be found here:

If the proposals go ahead, they would be implemented in July 2017.
