Hampton and The Vil­lages

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&World Update -

RES­I­DENTS can have their say on com­mu­nity is­sues at a com­mu­nity coun­cil meet­ing tak­ing place later this month.

Or­ton with Hampton Neigh­bour­hood Coun­cil will meet at the Deaf­blind UK head­quar­ters at Cygnet Park, Hampton, at 7pm on June 29.

All res­i­dents are in­vited to at­tend the meet­ing and Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil leader, councillor Marco Cer­este is en­cour­ag­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic, busi­ness peo­ple and com­mu­nity groups to get in­volved.

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

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

The city’s seven neigh­bour­hood coun­cils were launched in Oc­to­ber 2009 and were pro­claimed as “the dawn of a new era for lo­cal democ­racy” by giv­ing res­i­dents a greater say in how money is spent and ser­vices are de­liv­ered.

The fourth round of meet­ings will see in­di­vid­ual agen­das that are tai­lored to the needs of the spe­cific coun­cil ar­eas.

Pre­vi­ous topics dis­cussed have in­cluded the need for fa­cil­i­ties for young peo­ple in the area and the need for a pedes­trian cross­ing on Oun­dle Road.

There will also be an open fo­rum for res­i­dents to raise their con­cerns.
