Community Conversations

Community Conversations are an opportunity to engage directly with the Council, on issues that are important to you.

They are usually held on a Ward basis, and can be in person or online. The format is normally a short presentation on the topic followed by questions and discussion. Each conversation normally lasts about an hour. Feedback is shared with attendees & on our website.
