Gloucester City Council’s overview and scrutiny committee is asking local people what topics they would like to see studied in depth over a period of 3-6 months.

In the past the committee has looked into issues such as unadopted green land, the evening economy, flood recovery and raising the standard of private sector housing.  These studies have led to improvements for residents in and around the city and in some cases, such as private sector housing, the impact has been life changing.

People can submit their ideas by emailing, or write to: Democratic Services, Herbert Warehouse, Gloucester Docks, Gloucester, GL1 2EQ.

Cllr Tom Coole, chair of the overview and scrutiny committee, said: “I’d love to hear from people living or working in the city on what they would like overview and scrutiny to look at in depth.  The committee will then choose one of the topics as a task and finish group.  However, I would remind residents that if they have an urgent issue they should still contact the council’s customer services team, 01452 396396.”

Cllr Paul James, leader of Gloucester City Council, said: “The city council is always keen to hear from the public about what they feel is really important to them so we can direct our resources towards achieving the outcomes they want to see.”

All suggestions need to be submitted by Friday 23 September 2016.
