City Council asks for public to get involved

Gloucester City Council's Overview & Scrutiny Committee is holding a special meeting for residents to consider its Together Gloucester transformation project.

Together Gloucester is about changing the way the council works, so it works better for its residents. Frontline and customer services staff have been trained to deal with more areas of the council's work, particularly housing.

Now the Overview & Scrutiny Committee wants residents of the city to attend the meeting and share their recent experiences of interactions with any of the council's services, either online, over the phone or in person. The meeting takes place at North Warehouse on 21st August at 6.30pm.

Cllr Tom Coole, Chair oft the committee, said: "The city council is facing unprecedented challenges, and it's now more important than ever that we work together, across party divides, to find a solution that delivers the best for residents. It's important that we listen to residents' experiences, and take on board their comments, and I would encourage residents to come along and share their ideas".

Local people are encouraged to submit their experiences or any questions they would like to put to the committee in writing by Wednesday 16th August 2017.
