Residents in Wandsworth Common ward can have their say on local services
Published: Thursday 8th February 18
Residents living in Wandsworth Common ward will be able to deliver their verdicts on a range of public services at a special feedback session next week.
The next ‘Let’s Talk’ meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 13 and will give residents in this part of the borough the opportunity to raise issues of concern with their locally elected representatives and make sure leading councillors and senior town hall officials understand their neighbourhood priorities.
Those attending can raise any issue, with popular topics discussed at previous meetings ranging from parking, street cleaning and recycling to schools, housing, policing, public transport and local NHS provision.
The sessions are designed to give people a direct way to highlight local issues with their elected representatives and senior town hall officers, who will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and listen carefully to ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved.
The meeting is being held at Beatrix Potter primary school and will commence at 7.30pm. People attending should use the school entrance in Openview.
It will be attended by the three Wandsworth Common ward councillors Claire Clay, Maurice Heaster and Kathy Tracey, plus the leader of the opposition Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by another senior councillor.
People who are unable to attend can submit questions in advance via the council’s website at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/letstalk. A summary of the issues raised by residents will be posted on these web pages after the meeting.
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.
A leaflet advertising the meeting has been hand delivered to very home and business in the ward.
