Have your say

Sheffield Council is inviting residents to learn how to get involved in crucial debates about the future of the city, as part of Local Democracy Week.

The special week, which runs until Sunday, is an annual Europe-wide campaign which encourages people to have their say on how council services are run.

To mark the start of the week, the council is launching its new neighbourhood liaison work, which will replace community assemblies.

The plan is for regular meetings to take place in each ward where residents can get involved in decision-making on issues including library closures and major service changes to save money.

The council’s proposals will be outlined at a public launch in the Town Hall between 6pm and 7pm on Monday.
