Stow V.I.C. Rules Out Move To Library

Posted: 22/06/2007 08:49:47

Stow’s Visitor Information Centre will not be moving to the library in St Edwards Hall, Cotswold District Council announced today.

However, the Council is still committed to reducing the £70,000 annual cost of providing the service.

The authority has been in discussions with Gloucestershire County Council to use part of the library, but ultimately feels it is not in the Centre’s interests to make the move.

Council Leader Cllr Lynden Stowe told today’s Cabinet meeting: “Having reviewed the offer from the County Council, the space available, the costs involved and the potential impact on service and income, we feel this is not the right solution for us.

“The VIC attracts in the region of 150,000 visitors every year and provides huge support to the local businesses within and around the town.

“We are pleased there is such strong support for the VIC and we’ll be asking the Town Council and local business leaders if they can turn that support into financial backing for the Centre to secure its future.

“This partnership approach has been successful in other market towns and it could work to everyone’s benefit.”
