The Leader of Barnet Council would like residents to offer their views at one of three Engage Barnet events being held in September.
Residents are being strongly encouraged to sign up now for one of the sessions online.
Councillor Richard Cornelius, the Leader of Barnet Council, will inform residents about the council’s priorities for the borough, which have been laid out in the blueprint for its 2019-2024 corporate plan. People will then be able to give their feedback and influence the future direction of the plan.
Councillor Richard Cornelius, Leader of Barnet Council, said: “I want to listen to the concerns of our residents and take them on-board. I want our residents to feel involved in the future direction of their borough. This will ensure that we can get a better deal for everyone who lives here.”
The first Engage Barnet event will be at the Sangam Centre, 210 Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware, HA8 0AP, from 7-9pm on Tuesday 4 September. The second will be at The Bull Theatre, 68 High Street, Barnet, EN5 5SJ, from 7-9pm on Tuesday 11 September. The third will be at Clayton Crown Hotel, 142-152 Cricklewood Broadway, Cricklewood, NW2 3ED, from 7-9pm on Wednesday 12 September.
Residents can also view the blueprint for the 2019-2024 corporate plan online at Engage Barnet, where they are invited to complete an online survey to give the council their feedback.
I am sure that if you think Richard has done a marvellous job running the council, he'd love you to come along and tell him! He's a friendly chap and is quite approachable. If however, you are not happy with the way the council has been run, the only way you can change this is to come along and let Richard know. I am sure if you regularly read this blog and the other excellent Barnet blogs, then you will doubtless be aware of a few issues to discuss with Richard. I am a big believer in public engagement. I am pleased that Richard is doing this when there is not an election looming, as I am rather hoping that this means he actually wants a genuine conversation.
