The first of a new style committee, from the District Council, meets on Tuesday 8th November. This new committee replaces the “Area committees” which were abolished last year to save money. At the moment we believe the start time to be 7.30pm at the Civic Suite in Rayleigh.
This forum is open to the public, indeed is designed for the public to attend and ask questions of their District, County and Parish Councillors as well as other attendees such as Essex Police and the Health Service. It appears that questions do not have to be submitted in advance and can be asked on the night and an immediate answer received, although we would imagine sometimes a full answer may require more time than that.
