Lancaster City Council seeks your views

Lancaster City Council is inviting residents to submit their ideas on which local issues should be considered by its Overview and Scrutiny Committee this year.

Whether it’s a problem with a local park, a council service or an issue you feel the council should lead on and help to improve, the committee wants to hear from you.

All suggestions will be considered and those which would benefit from further investigation may lead to a task group being formed to focus on the issue and determine the best way forward.

Coun David Kerr, chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, said: "In recent years various task groups have made a number of recommendations to Council, Cabinet and other agencies, with the intention of helping to make real improvements to the lives of residents in the district. It is therefore important that local people get in touch, let us know what concerns them or how the council can improve the services it provides."

If you have a particular issue that you wish to be examined in this way, please send it to the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, c/o Democratic Services, Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster, LA1 1PJ, by email to scrutiny@lancaster.gov.uk or telephone 01524 582065.

All the meetings are open to the public and normally held at Morecambe Town Hall.
