Thank you for submitting the petition to support Blackfield Library which was received by Hampshire County Council on the 18 March 2020.
The petition was submitted as part of the Consultation on Proposed Changes to Hampshire’s Library Service, which closed on the 18 of March 2020. Officers are now analysing the responses to the consultation and I can confirm that the petition you have submitted will be taken into account as part of this assessment.
Due to the current Covid 19 pandemic, all formal public meetings of the County Council (Committees, Panels, Decision Days) have now been cancelled until the end of June 2020. This means that the planned Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage Decision Day, on the 4th June 2020, will have to be rescheduled. We will publicise a new date as soon as possible - although as you will appreciate, we may not be in a position to confirm details for some time.
Thank you for taking the time to organise this petition.
Councillor Seán Woodward
Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage
