Our Meet your Councillor sessions are a chance to speak directly with your local elected official in a relaxed, informal setting. It’s a chance to ask questions, share ideas and exchange views and information about matters that are important to you.


Meet your Councillor sessions

The meetings are run as collaborative round-table discussions where attendees talk directly with their local Councillors about issues that are important to them. Senior Council staff are also available to share information about services and projects and answer questions.

With three sessions running between 5pm and 8:30pm over three dates - one for each Ward - register for the session time that suits you so you can join the conversation.

Come along armed with your questions, ideas, and inspiration to share with your Councillors.

When attending a session you’ll be invited to take part in current engagement activities and all attendees will be asked to agree to our Mutual Respect Charter.

Light refreshments will also be provided.

If you're not sure which ward you live in check our map here and for dates of your session check the panel below (on a tablet/mobile) or to the right (on a computer).
