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.

The Thunderclap had a massive impact at around 10.30. We’ve not included them in the Storify page, but the effect on the day was amazing. Thank you to all who took part. We’ve created a ‘TweetBeam’ of the Thunderclap here, have a look and see if you are there:
