There is also now an excellent summary of events from Laura Swaffiled, chair of The Library Campaign, who was also in attendance. Click here to read that: My first JR! Two illuminating days in the High Court in London.
A quick reminder of the grounds of the review:
- that the consultation was unlawful as the decision had already been taken
- that the Council failed to ensure that the harm that was going to be caused by their decision was prevented, as required by the Equality Act
- that the Council failed to properly consider the proposal by Greenwich Leisure Limited ( a not for profit agency who had bid to run the library service). As a result the Council had failed in its duties under the Localism Act (1)
- that if the cuts go ahead Lincolnshire’s Library Service will no longer be comprehensive and efficient and therefore will breach the national requirements.
