Leaders at Sheffield Council are to host a round of ‘Question Time’-style sessions – for residents to raise issues that matter to residents in their areas.

The Cabinet in the Community sessions will be hosted by the city’s new local area partnerships - a new ward-based approach to involving local communities in decisions made about their areas.

Coun Julie Dore, council leader, said: “It is vital we get out there and listen to your views, so we can shape the future of Sheffield together.

“Cabinet in the Community is a great way of focusing on key issues in specific areas.

“Sheffield is a big city and each area is different - not only in their make-up, but in the things that matter the most.

“Being elected councillors in our own communities, we appreciate firsthand how important it is to give residents and businesses opportunities to talk to us.

“I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to take part in some important debates in each area.

“I hope as many people as possible will use the sessions as a way of engaging in democracy at a local level.”

The first meeting will be on Thursday, February 13, from 6pm, at St Columba’s Methodist Church, Manchester Road, Crosspool.
