The Parish Council meets tonight at 7.30pm in the Hullbridge Centre, Windermere Avenue.
It seems the agenda is full of consultations that have peripheral bearing on Hullbridge but certainly wouldn’t be at the top of most people’s priorities.
However I will be raising the Issue of Hullbridge Library and the proposal I have made to maintain it at 24 hours a week instead of the proposed 16 hours. To do this the Parish (or District) will have to come up with some substantive ideas about funding the difference of 8 hours.
The funding gap could be made directly by an increase in the Parish Precept (The Parish’s share of the Council Tax) or perhaps by a community Group or even the Parish Council itself sharing the Library Building. These are things that need to be discussed and I will be raising them tonight.
