HOUSEHOLD WASTE RECYCLING CENTRES
There are currently 24 HWRC sites in Hampshire which are open seven days a week, all year round (except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day), but this level of service is no longer affordable as Government continues to reduce funding for local authorities. Hampshire County Council is seeking views from Hampshire residents on a range of proposals to help lower the running costs and a ten week public consultation runs until Wednesday 25 May 2016. To find out more and to complete the consultation questionnaire visit the HCC website by clicking here.
THE FUTURE OF HAMPSHIRE’S LIBRARY SERVICE
Hampshire County Council’s Library Strategy approved on 18th April has been shaped by the 9,500 responses collected during the consultation. The Strategy will provide an approach to meet customers’ demands for a modern service – making the most of emerging digital technologies and investing in library buildings. Planned improvements include exploring the use of electronic self-service counters to provide extended opening hours in some locations, and the refurbishment of a number of sites to make them bright and more welcoming to visitors. In addition, the Home Library Service will be expanded to replace the relatively high-cost Mobile Library Service which will cease at the end of June this year.
