People living in the area are being invited to the latest ‘Let’s Talk’ meeting where they have the opportunity to tell their locally elected councillors and senior town hall officials what their neighbourhood priorities are.

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 and listen carefully to ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved.

The meeting is being held on Tuesday, July 9 at Belleville School in Belleville Road. The main meeting will commence at 7.30pm but people will be able to speak to councillors and officers on a one-to-one basis from 7pm onwards.

It will be attended by the three local ward councillors Louise Calland, Peter Dawson and Aled Richards-Jones plus the leader of the opposition Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by the council’s cabinet member for housing Kim Caddy.

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.
