Closed 18 Sep 2019

Opened 26 Jun 2019


This public consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the way that Children's Centres and Libraries operate in the London Borough of Havering.

The consultation also asks questions about how communities use facilities and activities in Havering and whether there might be appetite to set up Community Hubs in the borough.

Why your views matter

We are consulting because seeking views on what you think of our proposals, or information about how the proposals might affect you or someone you know, is really important in making sure that we have taken important evidence on board before making a decision.

Our children's centres and libraries are very important places of learning and development and we want to make sure that any proposals to change how they are run are understood by service users and people across the borough.

What happens next


Thank you for taking the time to respond to this consultation. We will now collate and analyse the results and write a consultation report.

A report seeking Cabinet decisions on how Children's Centres and Libraries will operate in Havering, informed by the results of this consultation, will be published in the autumn.
