The State of Tamworth Debate just a few days away

November 19, 2014

TAMWORTH goes under the spotlight next week as borough councillors from different political groups take part in the annual ‘State of Tamworth Debate’.

The annual debate will take place on Wednesday 26th November in the Council Chamber, Marmion House at 6pm. Members of the public are encouraged to come along and listen to the meeting.

Councillors will hold a lively discussion about Tamworth in the Council Chamber, taking a look back over the past 12 months, while outlining plans for the future.

The debate will be split into four areas which will be introduced by the Council’s Cabinet and the Leader of the Council:   Local economy and regeneration; safer communities; local health; and sustaining Tamworth.

Also under discussion are the borough council’s priorities, along with achievements during the past 12 months and people’s views about the council and its services.

The meeting will also discuss residents’ views, which were raised at the recent Question Time event, along with the results of consultations throughout the year.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Daniel Cook, said: “The State of Tamworth Debate will once again put Tamworth under the microscope, where we will both look back over the past 12 months and I will be outlining plans for the future. It is a good opportunity for councillors of all political persuasions to discuss what is important; the future of our town.”
