  • The roles and responsibilities of Community Councils

Various drop-in sessions have been arranged.

Other venues will be added once the dates have been confirmed.

What happens next

Following the consultation, a report will be submitted to Full Council on 13 December which will outline the content of the consultation responses.  The boundary proposal feedback will be used to make further amendments to the proposals where appopriate.
