Council Cuts Consultation Results Revealed

24 November 2011, 05:00

Two thousand people have told Reading Borough Council what services are important to them.

The results will be revealed at a special event at the Town Hall tonight.

It's part of the Council's 'We Need To Talk' initiative, giving local people a chance to have their say on issues before they make budget decisions.

The feedback begins at 6pm.

Bet Tickner, Lead Cllr for Public Engagement, said:

"Residents have responded positively to our consultation.

"It’s time now to take things forward in terms of feedback to community groups and residents on the results of that exercise, the main themes emerging from what they said and their response when we ask the question: `Have we got it right in how we’re planning to take forward what you’ve said?"

The top priorities as listed by local residents will then be announced and people attending will then be invited to split into different groups to discuss key themes in more detail.
