Delegation of Library Function to Preston City Council at the Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library

The Re-Imagining the Harris project is a partnership between Lancashire County Council and Preston City Council which started in 2015 with the aim of repositioning the Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library. Since the project’s inception one of the main priorities has been to develop a shared service in the building to ensure customers receive highest quality and joined up services, delivered in the most efficient manner. To achieve this shared service, this report recommends that the library function at the Harris building is delegated to Preston City Council under a section 101 Local Government Act 1972, delegation of function agreement.
