Thursday's feedback session will be chaired by council deputy leader Jonathan Cook

People living in the area are being invited to the latest ‘Let’s Talk’ meeting where they will have the opportunity to tell their locally elected councillors and town hall managers what their neighbourhood priorities are.

Those attending can raise any issue, with popular topics discussed at previous meetings ranging from parking, street cleaning and recycling to schools, housing, policing, public transport and local NHS provision.

The sessions are designed to give people a direct way to highlight local issues with their elected representatives and senior town hall officers, who will be on hand to answer questions and listen carefully to ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved.

The meeting is being held on Thursday, March 12 at Smallwood Primary School in Smallwood Road. The main meeting will commence at 7.30pm but local people will be able to speak to councillors and council officers on a one-to-one basis from 7pm onwards.

It will be attended by the three local ward councillors Annamarie Critchard, James Daley and Paul White plus the leader of the opposition Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by the council’s deputy leader Jonathan Cook.

People who are unable to attend can submit questions in advance via the council’s website at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/letstalk. A summary of the issues raised by residents will be posted on these web pages after the meeting.

People with a disability who require support or assistance to attend should call Elizabeth Kingdom on (020) 8831 6095 or email elizabeth.kingdom@richmondandwandsworth.gov.uk

A leaflet advertising the meeting has been hand delivered to very home and business in the ward.
