Take part in the Neighbourhood Conversation this February

Neighbourhood Conversations are an opportunity for residents to influence priorities in their area.

They can discuss the things that matter to them with their ward councillors and representatives from services such as the Council, the NHS and the Police.

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

Neighbourhood Conversations have been taking place across the borough since 2015 and 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.

Residents will receive direct answers from officers at each event and all feedback is collated in the Community Plan for each neighbourhood area.

Councillor Kevin Davis, Leader of Kingston Council, said:

“It is important that the we engage with local residents and stakeholders about the immediate and future priorities for the council. The Neighbourhood Conversations are a good way to find out the concerns our residents have around topics affecting them in their local area. We can use these to shape some of the way we deliver services.”
