Borough residents’ chance to have their say and another round of Neighbourhood Conversations in March 2016

We're inviting residents to join four Neighbourhood Conversation forums in March, to discuss the importance of health, transport and the infrastructure for growth.

The evening workshops will take place in Surbiton, Kingston Town, Maldens and Coombe and South of the Borough, led by the Neighbourhood Chairs.

Similar conversations that have been scheduled across the borough since last Autumn have proved popular with local residents. They represent an ongoing commitment by the Council to continue improving engagement with residents, helping residents identify and discuss issues that matter to them most and so help shape solutions and positive outcomes.

Councillor Kevin Davis, Leader of Kingston Council, said:

“It is vital that the Council has an open and engaged conversation with our residents and stakeholders about growth opportunities as well as possible threats that face us. We need to take some tough decisions in order to deliver the level of efficiencies that we need to make in the coming years.

“These forthcoming Neighbourhood Discussions will help us hear the concerns residents have around crucial topics affecting us on a daily basis, namely transport, growth and health. The issues raised in these forums will in turn help shape the content and delivery of services now and in the future.”
