*Consultation on future delivery of Library, Registration and Archive (LRA)*

*services in Kent*

As you may have seen in the local media, Kent County Council is 
transforming the way it delivers its services as well as reducing costs.

Because Library, Registration & Archive services are valued by our 
communities, we have given a lot of consideration as to how to deliver 
them in the future. From many options we have looked to find the most 
sustainable that will deliver customer-focused services and contribute 
to the savings KCC has to make. Setting up a Charitable Trust to deliver 
the LRA service is our preferred option on which we are now in a 
position to consult.

The public consultation is now underway and will run until 8th April 
2015. I wanted you to be aware of this and encourage you to consider the 
proposal and feedback your thoughts. No formal decision has been taken 
and we want to hear everyone's views.

More detail about the proposals and the consultation questionnaire can 
be found online at www.kent.gov.uk/lraconsultation 
<http://www.kent.gov.uk/lraconsultation>. It is also available in all 
Kent Libraries and Registry Offices.

We are also running 24 drop-in roadshows across the county where people 
can come and speak to staff about the proposals. You will find all the 
dates and times of these online at www.kent.gov.uk/lraconsultation 
<http://www.kent.gov.uk/lraconsultation> and I would encourage you to 
come along to one of these.

Should you have any specific questions about the proposal and how this 
might affect you or your partnership with us, please do not hesitate to 
contact me by emailing LRAconsultation at kent.gov.uk 
<mailto:LRAconsultation at kent.gov.uk>  or call 03000 413131.
