High Court Rules GCC’s Library Cuts Unlawful on Grounds of Equality

Following the result of the court case where the judge found that GCC were in breach of law regarding equality, FoML are urging our Parish Council to re-present our case urgently to GCC.

We feel that on the grounds of equality we have “vulnerable community members” who need a library in Minchinhampton with Public Library status funded by GCC and operating fully within the County Library network.

A ‘Community Library’ is none of these things and will have no security of tenure.  It would operate more like a ‘club’ and it is highly likely that the GCC grant will be withdrawn in a few years and we will end up having no library facilities in Minchinhampton at all.
