We have improved the way we work with local communities by basing Neighbourhood Officers in each of the borough's 24 wards to tackle local people's concerns quickly and effectively.
In addition we propose to hold two public meetings per year in each ward so people can hear about and comment on plans for their local area.
These meetings would replace quarterly Neighbourhood Forums which focus on day-to-day issues.
A public consultation has recently been completed - thank you to everyone who took part. Details of future public meetings will be available soon.
