Congleton will be holding its Annual Town Meeting on Thursday 27th April in Congleton Town Hall, starting at 7pm. Everyone who has the right to vote in Congleton has the right to attend the meeting and raise issues.
This is not a Council meeting, but is a meeting that is a right of local people and must be held every year before the end of May. The meeting will be chaired by Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr David Brown. Doors open at 6.30pm and there will be a chance to have a hot drink before the start of the meeting.
The meeting will be opened by Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr David Brown and will start with a number of short presentations on some key activities for Congleton including:
- The Public Realm works planned for the pedestrian area
- Increasing cycling in and around Congleton
- Congleton’s Neighbourhood Plan update
- Congleton in Bloom
- Congleton Old Saw Mill, Havannah Weir and Green Spaces project.
The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session, and then an open session where anyone can ask questions and raise issues that concern Congleton. The meeting is expected to close at 8.30pm.
Chief Officer, David McGifford said: “The Annual Town Meeting is a great chance for local people to get together and ask questions about issues affecting the town. It is not a Council meeting, and any councillors attending have the same rights as everyone else in the room. Issues raised in the meeting will be picked up by the Council or forwarded to the appropriate organisation for consideration. I hope that many local residents and representatives from local organisations will take the time to attend.”
