People of Melton urged to have say on council’s new community strategy

Have your say

People of Melton are being invited to help shape how Leicestershire County Council delivers its new communities strategy.

Last year the council agreed a new strategy which outlines how it can help communities to help themselves.

Following feedback that residents would like to be involved in shaping how this strategy is delivered, the council is running a series of workshops.

Pam Posnett, cabinet member for communities, said: “Each workshop will be interactive and will include opportunities to learn about good practice, identify the people and places most in need of support and think about where communities could have most impact and the support that they might need.”

A breakfast workshop (8am-10am) will be held in Melton, at a venue to be announced, on Tuesday, January 27. The theme will be ‘How can communities improve their environment? (including housing, community buildings and green spaces).

To book a place call (0116) 3056977 or (0116) 3058099 or email

Venue details will be provided a few days before the event to all those who have booked a place.

The results of all the workshops will be fed into the council’s draft communities strategy delivery plan which will be considered by County Hall’s ruling cabinet in April.
