Latchmere residents can quiz councillors
Release date: Tuesday 10th July 12
Residents in Battersea’s Latchmere ward will be able to quiz senior councillors and raise issues of local concern at the latest Let’s Talk meeting, which is being held next week.
This feedback session on Thursday, July 19 will give residents in this part of Battersea the chance to deliver their verdict on a wide range of local services and highlight areas of concern.
The aim of these regular meetings is to make sure that both the borough's elected representatives and managers in the town hall understand local people's priorities for their communities.
Topics that crop up regularly at these meetings include street cleaning, recycling, parking, policing, public transport and the NHS.
The event will be chaired by council leader Ravi Govindia. He will be joined by Latchmere ward's three locally elected councillors - Tony Belton, Simon Hogg and Wendy Speck, plus the leader of the opposition Rex Osborn.
Senior managers from all the main town hall services will also be on hand to answer questions from the audience, address locally identified concerns and take on board any suggestions for improvements that residents identify.
People who are unable to attend can email questions in advance to www.wandsworth.gov.uk/letstalk. A summary of the issues raised by residents will be posted on this section of the council's website after the meeting.
The meeting is being held at York Gardens Library and Community Centre, 34 Lavender Road SW11 on Thursday, July 19 and will begin at 7.30pm.
People with a disability who require support or assistance to attend should call Gareth Jones on (020) 8871 7520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org in the days leading up to the meeting.
