We are aware that there are rumours on social media that there are plans to close the Moorland Road Library. This is not true, there are no current plans to close the library.
What is true is that the Conservative run Council intend to make substantial cuts to library funding across Bath and North East Somerset over the next three years, so the Moorland Road Library cannot be assumed to be “safe” in its current form in the long term. Please see page 12 (Modern Libraries Review) of this document: https://democracy.bathnes.gov.uk/documents/s45374/Appendix%203%20-%20Savings%20Details.pdf
Yesterday we spoke with Martin Veal, the Councillor responsible for library services and a senior council officer who both confirmed that there are no current plans to close the Moorland Road Library.
Shaun and Will are both committed to retaining a community library on Moorland Road and we will work constructively with the Council and the community to achieve that.
