Your chance to ‘Meet the Cabinet’ in Frome

MENDIPDistrict Council will be holding a ‘Meet the Cabinet’ event in Frome on Wednesday 29th May from 7.00pm-9.00pm at the Cheese and Grain.

The forums will take the format of question and answer sessions, with local residents asked to submit questions in advance on a range of key local issues.

The topics being covered are: · How your council tax is spent · Community safety (including the night-time economy) ·  Housing · Business development and the local economy · Leisure facilities · The place where you live (issues affecting your local environment/neighbourhood). Each topic for discussion will be allocated approximately 15mins for questions.

Mendip District Council leader Harvey Siggs said, “The new Meet the Cabinet sessions have been launched to further strengthen the council’s links with local communities and improve engagement with the people of Mendip.

“Local residents can already speak at cabinet meetings and can of course contact their local councillor at any time, but we hope that by setting up Q&A sessions around the district we will be able to meet many people who might otherwise not attend a cabinet or council meeting.

“We are particularly keen to find out about those issues that are affecting our local communities to ensure that we are tackling the things that are of most importance to people in Mendip.”

Questions need to be submitted in advance and must be received no later than midday on Monday 27th May. Email chiefex or calling 01749 341 205 / 206.

People who have submitted a question are requested to attend their local event to ask their question in person, and should note that questions on specific issues, for example, planning applications, will not be accepted.
