Your chance to quiz council leaders on Facebook Live

The leader of Dudley Council will once again be taking questions from the public in a live video feed on Facebook.

People will be able to put their questions to Councillor Patrick Harley on Wednesday 29th August in the latest Leader Live session - via the council’s Facebook page.

He will be joined by deputy leader of the council, Councillor David Vickers, and people will be able to put any questions to the pair – from the free parking and free swimming initiatives to ideas about improving communities. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:

"The leader live sessions are always a fascinating insight into what matters most to people. It is important we continue to listen and discuss ideas with people across the borough and I urge people to take the time to watch and take part."

The live video is also shared across the council’s social media channels for people to view. The live Q and A marks the latest round of community forums at venues across the borough. The 10 forums run from September 3rd to October 11th.

Kicking off the autumn round of community forums will be the Brierley Hill, Brockmoor and Pensnett meeting at Brierley Hill Methodist Church, Bank Street on Monday September 3.  Also taking place that evening will be the Castle and Priory, St James’s and St Thomas’s community forum at St Johns Parish Hall, St Johns Road.
