Surrey County Council's library proposals criticised

A local councillor has expressed concern at plans by Surrey County Council to overhaul library services.

Councillor David Munro, of Waverley Borough Council, urged a "full, effective and transparent consultation" before decisions were made.

Mr Munro said he was concerned that the fate of Bramley library, in his borough, along with 10 others, was "a done deal" and described receiving the news as "a bolt from the blue".

[My comment: There has been talk of closing libraries and reducing front line services across the country, whilst at the same time council senior officer's pay has been increasing substantially. Will we ever reach the point where CEOs are paid £1million plus but have nothing left to manage? The writing is on the wall.]
