Consultation on proposed changes to Hensingham library

Closed 8 Sep 2017

Opened 31 Jul 2017


We are consulting on proposed changes to Hensigham library.

Why We Are Consulting

In this consultation we are seeking the public’s views on the future of Hensingham Library which has limited opening hours and minimal levels of use. It is in close proximity to the main library in Whitehaven.

We need to consider whether the continued service at this library is the best way to deliver Council services to the community, and also whether it is the best use of Council resources, including staffing, library books and stock, and operational costs running and maintaining the building.

Options to be explored include alternative use of the library building, consolidation of services in main library with extended outreach, or no change.
