South West Cabinet In The Community

28 Oct

Leaders at Sheffield City Council have announced the latest round of ‘Question Time’ style sessions over the coming months to discuss issues that matter to people in their local areas.

This is now the fifth year of the ‘Cabinet in the Community’ programme – giving more people the opportunity to come and ask questions and get involved in the debate about Council issues across the city.

This year the focus of the meetings will be asking local people for their views on how they engage with the council.  The meetings will include the usual opportunity to put any question of concern to the relevant Cabinet Member.
