At the January 2017 Town Council meeting a discussion took place regarding the Councillor Surgeries.
Members agreed that the surgeries, which had been running for over a year at the Town Council offices, had not had achieved what they had been set up to do; i.e. to offer another method of communication with the Town Council and to encourage more people to come along to raise concerns or issues in person with a Councillor, without the same time constraints of the main meeting.
It was therefore decided to discontinue the Councillor Surgeries with immediate effect.
There will still be a ‘public participation’ session at the start of the meeting when residents can raise any issues.
Residents can also continue to contact the Town Council in the usual ways - by telephone, email, or in person to the office. In addition Councillors' contact details can be found at http://www.birchwoodtowncouncil.org.uk/council/councillors
