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
  • see what we've done to deal with the issues you have already raised
  • continue to work with us to find solutions
  • 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 area 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 before and after the more formal full meeting.
