Have say on issues at next neighbourhood council
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.
