Cabinet on the road meetings to return

Senior councillors will be back on the road this week to discuss local issues with the public and representatives from town and parish councils.

The first Cabinet meeting of 2019 will be held at Cowes Enterprise College at 5pm. (January 10).

Members held Cabinet meetings in Brading, Ventnor and Ryde last year, which were all well attended by the public.

On each occasion, separate meetings with representatives from nearby town and parish councils also enabled councillors to discuss local issues.

Council leader Councillor Dave Stewart said: “Our Cabinet on the road meetings have been really successful so far.

“It has been great to see so many people taking an interest in what we’re doing and really useful to hear feedback from the different areas.

“It’s something we’re planning to continue so we’re encouraging people to get in touch with us about topics they wish us to consider.”
