Have say on is­sues at next neigh­bour­hood coun­cil

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

RES­I­DENTS in the west of the city can have their say on the is­sues af­fect­ing their lo­cal area at the next round of neigh­bour­hood coun­cil meet­ings tak­ing place in June.

The city’s seven neigh­bour­hood coun­cils were launched in Oc­to­ber 2009 and Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil said they rep­re­sented “the dawn of a new era for lo­cal democ­racy”.

The meet­ings aim to give res­i­dents a greater say in how money is spent and ser­vices are de­liv­ered in their neigh­bour­hoods.

This is the fourth round of meet­ings and there will be an in­di­vid­ual agenda tai­lored to the needs of the spe­cific ar­eas.

These are set to be re­leased next week.

Ar­eas of dis­cus­sion that have been cov­ered in­clude anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and the loss of pub­lic con­ve­niences.

Leader of the coun­cil councillor Marco Cer­este has en­cour­aged mem­bers of the pub­lic, busi­ness peo­ple and com­mu­nity groups to at­tend their lo­cal meet­ings.

Cllr Cer­este said: “Neigh­bour­hood coun­cils are be­com­ing well es­tab­lished in the city and they pro­vide a great op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to get in­volved in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“This is their chance to have their say on what they think should be the pri­or­i­ties for the area.”

The Peter­bor­ough West Neigh­bour­hood Coun­cil, which cov­ers Bret­ton North, Bret­ton South, West and Raven­sthorpe wards, will be tak­ing place at Raven­sthorpe Pri­mary School, in Brig­stock Court, Raven­sthorpe.

The meet­ing will take place from 7pm on June 30.
