North East Ipswich Forum - 16th November

The North East Ipswich Forum will be held next week, the 16th November. The forum is normally held in the evening but this is our annual daytime forum.

The event starts at 11am on the 16th and the location is the Ransomes Sports and Social Club in Sidegate Avenue.

Topics up for discussion include the Suffolk County Council budget and we will also get an update on police priorities for North East Ipswich.

I will be attending the forum and hope some of you can join us on Thursday morning.

Is the plan to scrap area forum's on the agenda? Or are you not consulting on this...

One of the many problems with the forums is that Cllrs have no say in agenda and they are officer led. The new area committee will be Cllr led, have some power and will give residents more opportunity to question ccouncillors and hold them to account.

You are possibly right that the new committees should have been on the agenda and I will make sure that they are mentioned at Tha North East Forum next week.
