Public local area meetings

Better Together meetings

As a resident, you can go to the Council's regular meetings across the borough to:

  • make suggestions to improve your area
  • continue to work with us to find solutions
  • get involved in a thematic group discussion about your area
  • meet your local ward councillors
  • raise issues that affect you directly at our service surgeries.

We want to better understand priorities and issues as they affect different areas so that we can identify how best to make a difference to your neighbourhood in the future.

Local councillors and cabinet members will attend each session along with council staff.

Next meetings

Each area has an informal drop-in surgery from 6.15pm before the more formal full meeting starts at 7pm.

The theme for this round will be Your local area.
