Neighbourhood Forums are informal meetings for you to get together with neighbours and other local people to meet with your local councillors and find solutions to local issues.
Working with other agencies we have established a large network of over 60 forums to enable people to meet informally with their elected representatives.
Forums can vary how they operate to suit their own particular area. Most hold regular meetings where local people can suggest issues for discussion. The local county councillor often chairs these informal meetings and ensures that issues of concern are resolved. This might include 'referal' to an agency or part of the council. All issues raised are logged.
What are Neighbourhood Forums for?
Neighbourhood Forums also support community groups
There is also a small community grants budget for each forum area. If you wish to know more about how the Council is working in your community or if you have ideas and helpful suggestions please contact us:
