Council chiefs head to Ulverston to hear residents' views

First published in News

ULVERSTON residents can air their views on issues affecting the town when two council chiefs visit the Coronation Hall on Thursday (July 18).

South Lakeland District Council leader Peter Thornton and chief executive Lawrence Conway are holding a 'leaders' surgery' between 10am and 12pm.

People are invited to drop in for a chat and no appointment is necessary.

Coun Thornton said: “It is important that as a council we listen to the views of the residents in Ulverston and the surrounding area, answer their questions and find out what their issues are.

“There is no need for people to make an appointment, if they have something to say or if they have a subject they want to discuss, they should just pop along to the Coronation Hall.

“Lawrence and I are keen to hear any suggestions or ideas that people may have and we will endeavour to answer people’s questions on the day.”

Coun Thornton has already held surgeries in Kendal and Windermere, where issues raised included parks and gardens, footpaths, tree pruning, allotments, pavements and facilities for young people.
