A public meeting of Wirral Council’s Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee yesterday evening had an urgent item on a recent Libraries, Leisure and Culture Transformation Scrutiny Workshop held earlier this month.

Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Wirral Council) 22nd September 2017 starting at Libraries, Leisure and Culture Transformation Scrutiny Workshop

At the end of this post is a copy of the 6 page report that resulted from the workshop.

This Cabinet report and its associated appendix (written by consultants) describe what it is about in more detail.

If you read between the lines of the workshop report, there are a lot of words used in it that are code for cuts, here is a quote (Members means councillors) “Members agreed that one of the aims of this project was to reduce the Council investment in these services and members suggested that some services may have to be sold to residents at the price it costs the Council to deliver them”.

  1. If the Council want to save money, its easy shut all librarie any turn off all the street lights, never repair any roads/walkways.
    Of course the streets will be covered in dog poo and litter, our bins will get emptied ever few weeks, grass verges and over growing trees will be left to grow, weeds will begin to grow out from the road gulleys all in all the place will look like a ****** hole!
    Oh wait they already do that and how much of a **** hole can this place look like?
    So they had a meeting [ and one with another mouthful in the title] but how much did it cost to hold the meeting?

    • I’ve no idea whether you’re referring to the cost of the Libraries, Leisure and Culture Transformation Workshop meeting or the Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting (or both). I’ve no idea what the cost was of either of those meetings anyway.

  2. G’day John

    They are burning money over Kev and Stella’s Stinking Stagnant wirral Waters on 5 November, they are building a kiddies museum down at Seacombe, they are building a massive private golf resort called Davies Hills.
