Lambeth Cultural Services by 2020 – Have your say!

Cultural Services by 2020 ¬† Dear All, ¬† A wide-ranging consultation on the future of cultural services in Lambeth is launched today and we want to give everyone the opportunity to express their opinion on the events,arts, parks, libraries and sports facilities. ¬† The council is facing unprecedented cuts to its core funding and has to save ¬£90 million by 2018. It means a saving of just over half of cultural services budget for 2013-14. With an anticipated population increase of more than 30,000 in the next ten years, we want to use our assets now to raise income that can be invested more widely for the future. ¬† So, we’re proposing significant changes in how cultural services are provided in Lambeth, including Events and Parks. ¬† We want to be more ambitious around generating income in our parks. We are consulting on a proposed events strategy to hold more events across the whole borough, bring our sound levels for events into line with the majority of London and bring a cultural festival to Lambeth. ¬† Libraries, Arts and Sports¬†services are also a part of the consultation. ¬† We have had thousands of conversations with local people over the last few years which have helped shape the proposals put forward today. We want to continue to work with residents to make sure we find the best solutions to the challenges we face. ¬† How to have your say ¬† You can find the overview booklet, all documentation and a questionnaire online at www.lambeth.gov.uk/culture2020consultation¬†and in all Lambeth libraries. The consultation will close at midnight on Friday 24 April 2015. ¬†...
