Your November Citizens' Assembly - 20 November 6-9pm (I hope Westhammers can attend their Assembly)
Your November Citizens’ Assemblies
Join us to have your say on local priorities. The second round of Citizens’ Assemblies will run throughout November and build on the findings from the first round that took place in September. Through the first round, and the working parties that were set up following these, 6 key priorities have been identified to address. The top three for Stratford and West Ham are:
Community Safety and Cohesion / ASB
Community Development and Culture - Including Support for Young and Elderly People
Environment Concerns (Litter, Flytipping) - Including Parks and Green Spaces
Email CN.Stratfordwestham@newham.gov.uk to let’s know what priority interests you the most and we will reserve your space on the round table discussion. Across all of the Citizens’ Assemblies Youth, Highways and Housing were highlighted as priorities for residents. This information will be collated and will feed into the borough wide strategy for these areas.
