A RALLYING call has been issued to residents to have their say on issues affecting Droitwich Spa at the next Communities and Agencies Together meeting, writes Ashton Price.
The event – for those living in the Droitwich South East ward – takes place between 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday, February 25, at the town’s Sacred Heart Parish Hall.
With a substantial amount of new housing coming to the town people are urged to raise any concerns they have, whether it be about roads and infrastructure, schools, GP and hospital provision, local policing and public transport.
And, after a fortnight where the Midlands has been hit hard by two storms – Ciara and Dennis – fears about flooding and future plans to combat the issue are also expected to be raised.
Coun Richard Morris and Coun John Grady, who both represent Droitwich South East, are hoping as many people as possible go along.
Coun Morris said: “Events like this are a great opportunity for residents to gain an insight into changes within the area.”
Coun Grady said he was looking forward to engaging with the community about any issues or concerns they had.
“It’s great to see that representatives from other authorities will be attending.”
Among those attending will be Droitwich Town, Wychavon District and Worcestershire County Councillors and representatives from highways, education, West Mercia Police, the South Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Fortis Housing.
There will be presentations and a question and answer session.
Residents who can not make the meeting, being held to ‘support an increasing population’ – can email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask any questions they may have.
