“Keep the Crosby Drill Hall Youth Centre Open”

Commenting on the proposals to close 7 Sefton Youth Centres, Councillor Les Byrom said:

” I have been bombarded with letters and e mails from the public, young people and staff opposing the planned closure of these centres, particularly the Crosby Youth Centre.
Rarely can I remember a budget issue causing so much concern, protest and public action.
I attended the Cabinet meeting on 17th February to support those making
presentations against the closure; they have obtained a 10,000 name petition opposing the closure.
One of the Liberal Democrat Cabinet members said at the Cabinet, that the
plan could be reviewed at the full council on 3rd March, I hope this is a
sea change by the Lib Dem / Tory administration on the Council and not just giving false hope.
I am calling for a 12 month postponement of the closure plans to enable full consultation to take place as required under the Education Act and to allow a review of the client groups and work undertaken in locally based youth centres.

I hope this postponement can be agreed to and a full review then
takes place”
