Galleywood Parish Council is very please to receive the news that Essex County Council has decided not to close any libraries in Essex. As part of the recent Essex Future Library Services Strategy 2019-24, Galleywood Library was originally placed in Tier 4 and identified for closure. The Parish Council has been proactive with holding a public meeting back in January and a series of meetings with Essex County Council's Cabinet member, Councillor Susan Barker. A draft Strategy for the Galleywood Library had also been prepared by the Parish Council to keep us 'ahead of the game'.
We now look forward to working closely with Essex County Council and others to deliver a future proofed Galleywood Library service.
