February 2022We held three "virtual" community forums via a Zoom webinar in the north, central and south areas of the district in February 2022. Area Community Forums February 2022 Notes
Topics presented by the District Council included the authority's proposed 2022/23 spending plans, climate change and an update on the council's plans to bid into round two of the Government's Levelling Up Fund for town centre redevelopment.
Residents were able to register to ask questions about any local issues in a question time section.
Council Leader Councillor Garry Purdy said: "We fully intend to take our community forums back on the road as soon as we and attendees have confidence in the Covid safety of potential venues. In the meantime we hope our residents will welcome the reintroduction of forums on a virtual basis and we encourage people to sign up now."
