Joint use library project sparks debate in council meeting

Community consultation - Joint use library project sparks debate in council meeting

Two councillors on Wednesday voted against the recommendations to progress council’s joint use library project. Councillor John Walker said he’d be voting against because “due process has not been carried out” and the “community not consulted”.

He said council has submitted to political pressure and there’s been no proper planning.

“We have not sought community requirements or expectations, or received community input or professional advice on the existing site so we don’t know whether the existing site could serve the same purpose,” he said.
