View more details for consultation Shaping the Future of Wrexham Library Service Shaping the Future of Wrexham Library Service Wrexham County Borough Council 30 Sep 2019 01 Dec 2019
Why are we doing this?

We know that the demands of our customers are changing and that there are many residents who don’t use our library services because they do not meet their needs.

 

The need to ensure that we are providing the things that our residents want, at the time that they want, has prompted us to undertake a comprehensive review our library services.

 

It is also timely for us to review the library services given the need for the Council to make further budget savings and changes to the way we deliver library services could improve efficiency and deliver savings.

 

In the Autumn of 2018 we asked the public whether you would want us to make some changes to the way we deliver library services in one or two areas of the County Borough or whether we should carry out a full review of library services across the whole of the County Borough. Our objective being, to ensure we meet the needs of local residents and to ensure our services are affordable for the future.  Over 58% of you supported a full review whilst only 13% supported changes in just one or two areas with the remaining participants in the survey having no preference.

 

What do we want to know?

We know that we cannot continue to deliver the library services as they are today and we want to hear from you about your ideas on how the service should be delivered in the future. We have some ideas about the way this could be done and through this consultation, we want your feedback about those ideas and any other suggestions you have.  

 

The big challenge we have is to widen access to our libraries whilst making some much-needed budget savings which the Council has to make.

 

Please now click on our Shaping the Future document below which explains our plans. At the end of the document is a link to our consultation survey which is your opportunity to give us your views on our proposals.

Why are we doing this?

Who is this consultation aimed at?

If you have an interest in the future of North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, then this consultation is aimed at you. 

Every year, before deciding on its plan for the following year, North Wales Fire and Rescue Authority invites comments on a particular subject.  The ideas, insights and different points of view that people contribute can be really helpful for making sure that the Authority’s plan for the following year is a good one. 

You don’t need to be an expert in environmental issues to respond.  All that the Authority asks is that you think seriously about the issues and submit your views, ideas or information by the deadline. 

 

What is this consultation about?

This year the Authority is asking about developing a long-term Environment and Sustainability Strategy.  What do you think that Strategy should include?  What should be at the forefront of the Authority’s thinking in terms of planning for the next 20 or 30 years?  What ideas do you have for the services that it might provide in the next decades?

Looking back over the past 30 years, we have seen significant changes in how people live and also what local people expect to contribute towards, and receive from, public services.  What do you think is likely to happen over the next 30 years?  Is there anything specific to North Wales that needs to be considered?

Climate change, environmental responsibility, social responsibility…what would you like to see in the Fire and Rescue Service’s plans for the future?  Everyone knows that it is a Service that has changed and adapted to a great extent over the years.  But waiting until the last minute before reacting is rarely the best way of doing things, which is why the Authority needs to plan ahead with an adaptable long-term strategy. 

We hope you find the information provided useful and that this will encourage you to submit your views before 31 December 2019. Details on how to respond are available at the end of the document.
