Listening Forum

An opportunity to raise suggestions, issues or concerns directly with Members of the Council’s Leadership Team

The Council has agreed a new programme of Listening Forums for Members of the Leadership Team to hear directly about issues that matter to you and your local area. The current programme will run from Autumn 2019 to Summer 2020 and includes:

  • three main meetings held in different areas of the Borough
  • a Digital Forum for residents to submit questions and receive a live response online
  • drop-in events at various locations in the Borough

At these events you will be able to raise any suggestions, issues or concerns directly with members of the Leadership Team. The Leadership Team will respond at the events, and if more information is required, will follow-up with a detailed response in writing.

Upcoming events in the Listening Forum programme

Listening Forum events organised for 20 April and 30 June have been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Please check this page and the Council’s social media pages; Twitter, Nextdoor Facebook, for further updates to the programme.
