Public workshop to look at what the Council should review

Neil SandisonRugby Liberal Democrats urge residents to attend a public workshop at Rugby Borough Council next month to discuss issues for councillors to review in 2018.

Councillors have started to plan the programme of overview and scrutiny work for the coming year, and have urged residents to raise issues of local concern which could benefit from a detailed review.

The public workshop takes place at the Benn Hall's Rokeby Room, Newbold Road, at 5.30pm on Wednesday 7 March.

Each issue included in the overview and scrutiny programme becomes subject to an in-depth review by a cross-party group of councillors.

Recent review topics have included homelessness, Public Spaces Protection Orders, town centre heritage, and waste and recycling.

Cllr Neil Sandison (Eastlands Ward), a Chair of one of the Council's Overview and Scrutiny committees, said:

"Overview and scrutiny has the power to make a real difference. But to be really effective it is important for local people to be involved and that's why we have issued an open invitation to the workshop."

To find out more information, suggest an issue for review or to confirm your attendance at the workshop, visit www.rugby.gov.uk/scrutiny and click 'Get involved.'
