Councillors in Holland ward have been focussing on getting in touch with their residents through a ward newsletter which was distributed in early September last year. The newsletter called for new ideas and highlighted some local organisations of interest including the newly formed Kensington and Chelsea Circle, a community based membership organisation open to anyone over the age of 50 and the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation. Councillors are working to involve young people in local life and received support from volunteers to help promote uniformed youth organisations in the ward. Councillors spent £3,407.95 last year.

Responding to you: public meetings on local services and community events with local activities

Holland Councillors hosted a series of public meetings in September and October 2012. The first was a community drop-in to find out about ways to get involved locally. The next three had senior officers in attendance to respond to your concerns and take questions and answers in an open format.

Thank you to all who attended, and your ideas and feedback are being taken forward. You can learn more about community activities currently available and see feedback from the public meetings on local services in this follow-up briefing report [PDF]  (file size 470Kb).

You may also be interested in the FAQs produced by service directors [PDF] (file size 156Kb) prior to the meetings to address common concerns you raised in the
Holland survey [PDF] (file size 195Kb). You can also see the presentation about subterranean developments (basements) [PDF] (file size 350Kb) given by the Executive Director for Planning and Borough Development.

Holland has lots of community actitivies running, and we're also always keen to here from you. See more about Current Community Projects
