8 Feb 15 - Annual Town Meeting on 31 March 2015

Members of the public are invited to join their Town Councillors at the Rhodes Centre on Tuesday 31 March 2015, at 7.30pm, for the Annual Town Meeting. Tea and coffee will be served at 7pm.

Why Attend?

The Annual Town Meeting has proved to be a valuable forum for Bishop's Stortford taxpayers to voice their opinions, question their elected Councillors and directly effect change in the community. Here, in this assembly, you can make your voice heard and learn about town issues, some of which may even be new to you!

What's On?

The Town Council has many projects in progress, such as the refurbishment of the paddling pool, the Masterplan for Sworders Field, the newly acquired running of the Markets, a Neighbourhood Plan for the Silver Leys and Meads Wards (which is due to go to referendum on 19 March 2015), and a new Neighbourhood Plan for the South, Central and All Saints Wards and part of Thorley parish.

These projects are in addition to the Town Council's regular activities, such as the maintenace of the cemeteries and allotments, the running of the community mini buses, including the Stortford Shuttle, on behalf of the Mini Bus Trust, and the management of four community centres, on behalf of the Community Centre Trusts. The TIC continues to provide residents and visitors alike with information on the Town and its activities and what's on in the surrounding area.

So why not spend an hour with us to up-date yourself on all these exciting and important projects, in addition to gaining an insight into the work undertaken throughout the year by the individual Town Council Committees.

The Agenda and further information will be posted on the Town Council's Website and notice boards around the Town two weeks before the meeting.

Questions in advance must be submitted no later than Friday 27 March 2015. Questions may be accepted on the evening if time allows.
