Dates set for Dudley Council's community forums

Dudley Community Forums return in June

People can meet with their local councillors and discuss ideas to improve the areas where they live when the ‘Your Home, Your Forum’ meetings return in June.

Dudley Council will host five forums covering all wards in the borough. The forums run from 6.30 to 8.30pm.

Dudley North Forum which will be held on Thursday June 8 at St Chadds Church Hall, Oak Street, Coseley (entrance via Birmingham New Road). The Dudley North meeting is for anyone living in the Coseley East, Sedgley, Gornal, Upper Gornal and Woodsetton wards.

The Brierley Hill Forum will be held on Monday 19 June at St James’ Methodist Church, Chapel Street, Pensnett for those living in Brierley Hill, Brockmoor, Pensnett, Wall Heath, Kingswinford and Wordsley.

The Halesowen Forum will also be held on Monday 19 June at Cradley Community Centre, Colley Lane and people living in Belle Vale, Hayley Green, Halesowen, Cradley and Wollescote are welcome to attend.

People living in Amblecote, Lye, Stourbridge North, Norton, Pedmore, Stourbridge East, Wollaston and Stourbridge Town are invited to the Stourbridge Forum on Thursday June 22 at Withymoor Primary School, Gayfield Avenue, Brierley Hill.

The Dudley forum will also be held on Thursday June 22 at Dudley Wood Neighbourhood Learning Centre and Library Link, off Pavilion Gardens, Dudley Wood Road, Dudley. People living in Castle and Priory, St James’s, St Thomas’s, Netherton, Woodside, St Andrews, Quarry Bank and Dudley Wood are welcome to attend.

The forums will be informal, giving people the opportunity to have their say and discuss what is good about their local area and what can be made better. Local councillors and a police representative will also be there for residents to talk to.

People attending the forums will also be able to find out about funding available to groups and organisations. Councillor Ian Bevan, cabinet member responsible for your home, your forums, said:

"This is the first opportunity residents will have had to meet with all of the newly elected members following the recent election.

"The forums also provide an informal setting for people to get together and talk about what can be done to make things better in the areas they live and to celebrate the things that are already going well so we can share best practice in other corners of the borough.

"We’d love to see as many people from our communities as possible, representing all ages and backgrounds. Everyone is welcome so please sign up to confirm your attendance today."
