Why is Topsham Library not part of the Devon Libraries consultation?
In Topsham, the County Council is progressing discussions with the Estuary League of Friends (ELoF) regarding the charity taking on the running of Topsham Library. In transferring responsibility for the site and the service to the charity, the ELoF plan to redevelop the site into a new building offering a range of community-based services which meet the broader needs of the local community, as well as sustaining local library provision. Planning permission for ELoF’s new building was granted by Exeter City Council on 14th April 2014.
Further to the initial 6 week consultation in Topsham last autumn, we plan additional engagement with the community in relation to the proposal from the Estuary League of Friends.
