Earlsfield residents can have their say

Published: 27 February 2017

Residents living in Earlsfield will be able to tell councillors and senior town hall officials their priorities for the area at a special feedback session this week.

The next  ‘Let’s Talk’ meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 1 and give residents of Earlsfield ward an opportunity to deliver their verdicts on the range and quality of the public services they receive.

Residents can choose any issue to discuss, with popular topics at previous meetings including parking, street cleaning, recycling, schools, housing, policing, public transport and the local NHS.

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 in St Gregory’s Church Hall, 306 Garratt Lane on March 1 and will begin at 7.30pm.

It will be attended by the three Earlsfield ward councillors Angela Graham, Charles Lescott and Rachael Stokes, plus the leader of the opposition Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by the leader of Wandsworth Council Ravi Govindia cabinet.

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.
