Set priorities in your area

Residents will have the opportunity to set the priorities for their area at the next round of Chesterfield Borough Council’s community assembly meetings.

At the meetings, residents can have their say on issues including health, community safety and crime, growth, the local economy and Chesterfield as a thriving borough.

The responses will be fed into a community action plan for each area.

Coun Sharon Blank, cabinet member for governance, said: “The best way for us to develop action plans for each area is for us to have the thoughts, ideas and opinions of residents so I would encourage people to come along to their community assembly meeting in September and have their say.”

Residents will also be able to vote on funding of up to £200 for local projects.

Each meeting will also include updates from Derbyshire Constabulary and from Derbyshire County Council’s public health team.

The meetings will be held on: September 15 at Whittington Green School, High Street, Old Whittington; September 16 at Netherthorpe School, Ralph Road, Staveley; September 23 at the Town Hall, Rose Hill; September 24 at Loundsley Green Community Centre, Cuttholme Road.

Meetings start at 6.30pm.
