Grill councillors about hot topics at meeting

Have your say

Residents can quiz councillors about problems in their community at a meeting tomorrow.

The fifth ‘cabinet in the community’ session takes place at Shirecliffe Community Centre from 6pm.

Coun Julie Dore, council leader, said: “We want to hear from as many local people as possible about the things which affect them most.

“We hope people will use the sessions as a way of engaging in democracy at a local level.

“It is important that local residents and businesses have an opportunity to talk to us so we can work together to make a difference and improve our city.

“We’ve had some really interesting questions at previous meetings about a variety of subjects, from HS2 to anti-social behaviour and youth unemployment, and we hope this stimulating debate continues.”

The meeting will be chaired by local councillors.

Anyone who attends will have a chance to ask questions.

These will then be discussed and debated.

Members of the community can ask on the night, or submit questions in advance by emailing
