Local residents are being urged to have their say at the next round of Area Community Forums to be staged across the Derbyshire Dales this autumn.
Hot topics up for discussion include the District Council’s ongoing savings target – and there will also be an update on the council’s public toilets consultation.
Also up for discussion will be the current process to outsource the management of the District Council’s four leisure centres. Attendees will hear that feedback to date has helped inform the outsourcing specification, which seeks to protect areas such as pricing, opening hours and programming.
A ‘You Said, We Did’ feedback session will be followed by a question time during which residents can talk about any local topics.
Council Leader Councillor Lewis Rose OBE said:
“These forums continue to be an opportunity for us to listen and for local people to tell us what they think about the services we operate on their behalf. I would encourage anyone who hasn’t attended a forum before to come along.”
The forums start at 7pm and take place at the Henmore Suite (McMurtry & Harding veterinary practice) in Clifton Road, Ashbourne, on Tuesday 24 October, at Bakewell Agricultural Business Centre on Wednesday 1 November and at Matlock Town Hall on Wednesday 8 November.
The 8 November forum will be streamed live on the council’s YouTube channel @derbyshiredalesdc. Anyone who can’t attend in person can email questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the District Council’s Facebook and Twitter pages @derbyshiredales
