Your chance to have your say

A series of consultation events starting next week will give the public a chance to have their say in helping to develop the Borough's first Sustainable Community Strategy.

Members of the Redcar and Cleveland Partnership and Redcar and Cleveland Council are drawing up the strategy which will set the vision for what the Borough will look like in the future and shape the work and priorities of all the Borough's public service providers.

Partnership Chair Professor Brian Footitt explained: "As well as consultation with stakeholders in the voluntary, community and private sector, there will also be opportunities to find out what matters to local people. We want to know what you think. What are your priorities for making the Borough and your neighbourhood a good place to live."

The 17 consultation events start on Monday, October 22, through to Friday, November 30. You can also have your say on-line, by going to the Partnership website, or the Council website.

Apparently more venues are to be added. The dates shown above are the public sessions that had actually been confirmed in time to appear in the Council's People, Progress, Pride publication.

The consultation process starts on the 22nd October but as yet there is no public session on that day. There may well be an event for a particular group or organisation on that date.

Any chance it will be held in Coatham Bowl or leisure Centre?
