IWC cabinet meetings hit the road, first stop Brading

The Isle of Wight Council’s cabinet is heading out on the road, in an effort for senior councillors to tackle more local issues.

Thursday’s (September 13) cabinet meeting in Brading will be the first held at a number of different locations across the Island over the coming months.

In addition to the formal meetings, which are open to the public, members will also privately meet with representatives from nearby town and parish councils.

Council leader Councillor Dave Stewart (Chale, Niton and Whitwell) said: “We’re very keen to make sure we’re at the heart of our local communities.

“This move will help us engage more closely with the public and with those serving on town and parish councils all over the Island.

“We’re encouraging people to get in touch about topics they wish us to consider.”

September 13’s meeting at St Mary’s the Virgin Church Hall, Brading, starts at 5pm.
