Battersea’s St Mary’s Park residents get to ask the questions

Published: 30 November 2016

Residents living in the St Mary’s Park area of Battersea will be able to deliver verdicts on the range and quality of the public services they receive at another ‘Let’s Talk’ feedback meeting early next week.

The meeting will give residents living in this part of the borough the chance to ask questions, raise issues of concern and have their say on a whole range of local topics.

Any subject can be raised, with local people often choosing to raise issues about parking, street cleaning, schools, housing, policing, public transport and the NHS at these feedback sessions - and suggest improvements in the way they are run.

The sessions are designed to give local people a direct way to highlight issues with their elected representatives and town hall officials.

The meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Monday December 5 at St John Bosco College in Parkham Street.

It will be attended by the three St Mary’s Park ward councillors Melanie Hampton, Rory O’Broin and Tessa Strickland plus the leader of the opposition group on the council Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by council leader Ravi Govindia.

Senior town hall officials will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and listen carefully to ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved.

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 garethjones@wandsworth.gov.uk.

A leaflet advertising the meeting has been hand delivered to very home and business in the ward.
