Posted: Fri, 17 Jan 2020 13:23 by Laura Storey

Derbyshire Dales District Council is starting 2020 with an invitation to residents to put questions direct to council leaders and senior officers.

Leader Councillor Garry Purdy, Deputy Leader Councillor Susan Hobson and Chief Executive Paul Wilson will take part in a question and answer session at a community forum at Bakewell Agricultural Business Centre on Wednesday 29 January, starting at 7pm.

The forum will be broadcast live on the District Council's YouTube channel at More »

Presentations will include an update on the newly approved waste contract for the district - including the introduction of a charge for garden waste collections from April 2021 - new Corporate Plan priorities and the upcoming Derbyshire Dales Budget Consultation.

Council Leader Councillor Garry Purdy said: "It is no secret that we are currently having to work harder than ever to protect the key services we undertake for the people of the Derbyshire Dales and this forum is an ideal opportunity for local people to put questions direct to the council's Leadership team.

"Listening to the views of local people and answering their questions is vitally important right now when we are analysing the main areas of our revenue budget and capital programme for the coming year.

"We welcome scrutiny and continue to review everything we do on a rolling basis to ensure our services are as cost efficient as possible, guaranteeing our residents get the best value for every penny of the 57p per day on average they currently contribute to the cost through Council Tax."
