Richmond upon Thames residents: share your ideas for the borough with your Councillors!
14 March 2023
Richmond Council is hosting its next Community Conversation event on 18 April, giving residents from all parts of Richmond upon Thames a chance to put forward ideas for the borough to the Leader of the Council and chairs of the decision-making committees.
Attendees can join in person or online.
Councillor Nancy Baldwin, Spokesperson for Communities, Equalities and the Voluntary Sector, said:
“Our vision for Richmond upon Thames is to be a happy, welcoming and safe space for the local community and visitors alike. Whether is it about having convenient access to local amenities and facilities, making our public spaces green, clean and accessible, or creating a borough where businesses and communities can thrive – we have big ambitions, but we can’t do it without you.
“This hybrid event will make sure as many of our residents and businesses as possible have the opportunity to join us to share their ideas and ask questions of their elected councillors. Just come along in person or join us on-line!”
Residents are encouraged to pre-submit questions when they register, on issues that affect their local area or the whole borough. Councillors will not be able to answer questions on individual or personal issues.
Topics residents may want to consider are:
- Community safety
- Environment and sustainability
- Strengthening communities
- Council Tax and Council spending
- Cost of living support
- Local high streets and public spaces
- Adults and children’s social care
The event will be held at York House, Twickenham on Tuesday 18 April from 6 to 8.45pm. Residents can also join online.
Attendance is free but registration is essential.
