This summer why not get involved in your local area, by having your say on a number of local issues that affect you and your community.
Over the coming weeks residents of Enderby, Blaby, Cosby and the surrounding areas are being invited to take part in a Community Forum meeting taking place locally. This Forum provides an opportunity to find out about, raise and discuss local issues and get involved in making changes.
Forums are open to everyone who lives, works or plays in the area and include discussion sessions alongside question and answer sessions. Your views will be critical in developing future policies and proposals. If you’re concerned with whats happening within your community, please come along to your next Community Forum on Wednesday 29th June at the Blaby Methodist Church Hall, Winchester Road, Blaby, LE8 4HL. The Blaby Central Community Forum starts at 6pm, with an open Information sharing and Networking session, where you will have chance to find out about street lighting, and the Blaby District Council Scrutiny Work Programme.
“Alongside finding out more about Street Lighting, the meeting on the 29th June will provide a real opportunity to discuss and find out more about the future of Youth Services where we live. This is an issue that has been of on-going concern for local people and I hope as many of you as possible are able to come along, find out more and get involved.”
Cllr. Lorna Gutteridge, Chairman, Blaby Central Community Forum
Representatives from the District and County Councils, and the NHS will be on hand to provide up to date information on what can and is being done to address these issues.
There are two-three meetings per year and these provide a real opportunity where you can share your views, meet your elected representatives and get your voice heard.
Throughout the district we have learnt more about Leicestershire County Councils Winter Maintenance Programme, including local Gritting routes, NHS consultations, the reduction of Bus Services and many more items. Be part of your community and raise your questions and queries. In addition to items raised on each agenda, there will be opportunity for questions from the floor to be covered during the Forum’s two hour session.
Community Forums offer a unique opportunity where all three tiers of local government come together and partners.
