Consultation result: don’t close our libraries!

Brent Town HallThe library consultation result is out, and the message from respondents across Brent is clear – don’t close our libraries!

And as if our campaign wasn’t already loud enough, over 37% of the respondents were Kensal Rise Library users. This is a fantastic achievement!

Unfortunately, local councillor James Powney, who is also responsible for libraries, has now deemed that the consultation document is “skewed” – because 37% of the respondents use Kensal Rise Library! Powney is still set on closing our library. Stop him by writing to Council Leader Ann John ( and other members of the executive. Urge them to take into account the results of Brent’s own consultation process. The council decide on Monday April 11th.
