People urged to get involved with community forums (hosted by Dudley Council)

Posted by on January 9, 2014 in Active & Supportive Communities, Home Page, Information & Advice | 0 comments

Residents are being invited to discuss local issues at the latest round of community forums – from multi-million pound budget savings to car parking and bin collections.

Dudley Council is running the 10 forums across the borough from January 28 to February 5.

They give people an opportunity to raise issues and concerns on any subject but could include the £60million worth of savings the council needs to make over the next three years, car parking in town centres, the council’s new waste or recycling scheme.

People can speak to councillors at each of the forums or raise issues with the council. Community groups can also bid for funding at the forums.
