Better Together meetings

Do you care about your area? Do you want to be more involved?

At our Better Together community meetings you can share your ideas for services, projects and events directly with the people responsible for organising them.

You can also find out more about what the Council and other organisations can do for you.

Better Together is a chance for everyone to gather in one place to discuss local issues – you don’t have to speak in front of a large group, you can talk individually to staff who can help.

There are four meetings in spring, with another four planned for the autumn. To make sure everyone has a chance to attend, some of the events are being held during the day, with others in the evening. The venue will also move around the borough so that you can find one that’s easy to get to.

We're also looking for community champions to help share information with local groups and communities they're involved with. Find out more.
