Focus to be put on Droitwich issues
8:20am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
PEOPLE in Droitwich Spa are set to be given a vital opportunity to raise their issues and concerns.
Wychavon District Council will host an important ‘Connecting with Communities’ event in the town’s central ward.
Councillor Glenise Noyes will hit the streets on Thursday (October 3) to speak with residents and traders in order to find out their major worries and opinions.
It is hoped the scheme will help councillors and council officers get a better understanding of their wards so they are able to find the best solutions and provide the best advice where it is needed most.
During her visit, Councillor Noyes will be hoping to speak to residents outside shops in Ombersley Street West, as well as visiting businesses Droitwich Print and Corsets and Cuffs.
Councillor Noyes said: “I’m looking forward to meeting my local residents and businesses once again. The visits will provide us with an opportunity to listen to their views and also remind them of the services available and highlight some of the things we have done for the area. For example, we have allocated a New Homes Bonus grant of nearly £100,000 for the town up to 2017/18, and £80,000 of this was recently used to help refurbish the local community hall and to buy new equipment for the town’s boxing club gym. We’ve helped to house 457 households in need, have carried out 57 community safety visits, and we organise and support major events such as St Richard’s Festival and Salt Fest.”
Coun Noyes will visit Droitwich Print from 9.30am to 10.30am, will speak to people in Ombersley Street West from 10.30am to 11.50am and go to Corsets and Cuffs from noon to 12.45pm.
The visit is being held to meet one of Wychavon District Council’s promises to create a programme for all councillors to meet residents in their wards and to work together on solutions to any issues raised.
