Perseverance pays off. After months of the Tories and the Labour party blocking moves to have a temporary Library in Southport during the two and a half year closure of the present one for renovation a glimmer of hope.
At this morning's cabinet meeting the Lib Dem moved a motion to get the officers to evaluate the new options for a site. Thanks to all the support we have received from the people of Southport-over 7000 people signed our petition-we have woken up the local Tories.
Lib Dem councillors have been working hard behind the scenes to find a town centre place for a library and have worked up the outlines a financial plan. We believe that the scheme we have identified is one that the Council can afford.
