Worcestershire County Council, in a review of their mobile library service, have given notice that the 3-weekly library van visit to Barnt Green is officially at risk. However, before any final decision is made, residents are invited to submit their comments. This can be done by:
• completing the online questionnaire (new window); or,
• completing a hard copy of the questionnaire.
Copies of the questionnaire are available from the mobile library, any Worcestershire library or from the parish council office at 80 Hewell Road, Barnt Green. The consultation period ends on 31 October 2014.
Barnt Green is a popular, semi-rural village of some 728 households in the north of the Bromsgrove District of Worcestershire. The Parish is bounded on its north-west side by the wooded Lickey Hills and to the east by the Upper and Lower Bittell Reservoirs.
The village centre contains many destination shops and services. Key services such as doctors, dentists, a post office, restaurants, take-away food outlets and several small businesses are also centrally located in the village.
Residents are well served by a wide range of community services, clubs and societies including churches, sports and social clubs, an excellent school and several pre-school playgroups and nurseries.
