We would welcome your views on what we should prioritise to benefit our communities

You are invited to submit suggestions for the Council's Corporate & Environmental Overview and Scrutiny Committee Work Programme for 2021/22.

From this the Committee will make recommendations to the Council as a whole which can influence important decisions it makes on strategies and projects.

Topics can cover any area of the work of the Council and our partners. Some of the projects we are working on such as replacement litter bins that are no longer fit for purpose in a number of location across the Borough and a Financial Inclusion Strategy have come from the recommendations of the Committee.

Councillor Carl Coughlan, Chair of the Corporate & Environmental Overview and Scrutiny Committee, said: “I am looking forward to hearing residents’ thoughts and suggestions for consideration by the Corporate and Environmental Overview and Scrutiny Committee. This will help us set a work programme that will continue to help us make a real difference to the Borough.”

If you have a suggestion that you think might be suitable then please email your ideas to or call 01695 585065. The deadline for topic suggestions for the work programme is Monday 19 October 2020.
