Upperthorpe people can meet in the Burlington Meeting Room tomorrow at the same times.

The Leverton meetings will take place on Tuesday, July 4 at the same times, in the Lansdowne Meeting Room.

Meanwhile, there are more meetings set down for Hanover residents as work to remove the cladding of that building began today.

They are on Thursday at 5.15 and 6.30pm in the Hanover Tower Block Meeting Room.
