Local Forum - East Neighbourhood (Chadwell, Seven Kings, Newbury, Goodmayes & Mayfield Wards)

Monday 3 December 2018

Start: 18:45
Finish: 20:30

The local community will have a new way to engage with the council when refreshed Local Forums are launched in September.

The forums will be a new way for more residents to talk to councillors, officers and key partners. With an increased number of meetings, residents can work together with the Council’s Civic Pride Neighbourhood teams and key partners to find solutions to local issues.

Discussions will focus on how we can best deliver services locally, addressing residents’ concerns and working together to strengthen our communities.

To kickstart a new collaborative approach, the first forum in each neighbourhood will be an opportunity to agree priorities for their area and the way they are discussed.

Attendees will also get a chance to question the Leader of the Council direct on any issue they wish to raise.

The forums will be held three times a year in each of the borough’s four neighbourhoods – north, south, east and west – for a total of twelve meetings per year across the borough.

Cabinet Member for Transformation and Engagement Cllr Helen Coomb said: "We’ve decided to take a fresh look at the way we engage with our communities through the local forums. We envisage a more market-style approach to the forums with our valued residents given the opportunity to chat with officers and councillors about any issue in a more relaxed way before we tackle a key issue. However, nothing is set in stone and it will be for individual forums to collaborate on the format that works best for their area. I hope people will take the time to attend.”

Please come along from 6:45pm for initial informal discussions with officers and councillors. The formal session will begin at 7:15pm and the Q&A session with the Leader will run from 8:00-8:30pm.

Venue: Isaac Newton Academy, 1 Cricklefield Place, Ilford, Essex, IG1 1FY
