NORTH Weald Bassett Parish Council is seeking the support of the parish’s district and county councillors over its wish to move its offices back into North Weald Library.
The parish council wants its district and county council representatives to lobby the county council on behalf of the resident and parish council.
The library is currently open Tuesdays (9am to 1pm), Thursdays (2pm to 5.30pm) and Saturdays (9am to 5pm).
The parish council says it could offer to provide a library service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and 1pm, when parish council staff will be in the building.
The parish council has also suggested that it could run a ‘Warm Bank’ at the library where local residents could keep warm in the winter, enjoy a book, have a cup of coffee and a biscuit and enjoy the company of other residents.
