Sutton's Library Service

Closed 16 Dec 2015

Opened 23 Sep 2015

Results Updated 27 Jan 2016

The results of the consultation on Sutton's Library Service are set out in the attached document.



The reductions in funding to the Council from central government mean that Sutton Council will have to save a further £31m from its annual budget by 2019. The Council believes that this cannot be done without looking at other ways to deliver its services. As part of the cost-cutting measures, the Council has identified £1m of savings from the annual libraries, heritage and arts budget which currently stands at £4.4m.

We would like to hear the views of residents and other library users about the ways in which we could make savings while continuing to provide an excellent library service.

You may wish to read through the document attached below which gives background information on each of the proposals before answering the questions.
