The State of Tamworth Debate just a few days away
Tamworth goes under the spotlight later this week as all 30 councillors take part in the annual State of Tamworth Debate.
The annual debate will take place on Thursday March 9 in the Council Chamber, Marmion House at 6pm. Members of the public are encouraged to come along and listen to the meeting.
Councillors will hold a lively discussion about Tamworth, taking a look back over the past 12 months, while outlining plans for the future.
The debate will be split into three parts. Each topic will take up 40 minutes and each councillor can speak once for a maximum of five minutes.
The Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, Cllr Daniel Cook, will present a two-minute introduction to each item. The three topics follow Tamworth Borough Council’s vision and priorities – Living a quality life in Tamworth, growing stronger together in Tamworth and delivering quality services in Tamworth – and are the issues which are most important to the residents of Tamworth.
The State of Tamworth Debate will also discuss achievements from the last 12 months and feedback from last month’s Tamworth Listens Question Time event and consultations carried out during the year.
Cllr Cook said: “The State of Tamworth Debate will once again put Tamworth under the microscope, where we will both look back over the past 12 months and outline our plans for the future. It is a good opportunity for councillors of all political persuasions to discuss what is important; the future of our town.”
The meeting is open to members of the public to attend and listen to the debate. The council’s communications team will also be live Tweeting during the meeting, using the hashtag #TamDebate.
Anyone who would like to attend is asked to be in the Chamber by 6pm so that the debate can start promptly.This entry was posted in News by Stacy Birt. Bookmark the permalink.
