Invite to speak to council chief

Residents who want to ask a question can raise it directly with the Leader of Chorley Council in his monthly slot aimed at listening to what local people have to say.

The 'Leader Listens' is back where Coun Peter Goldsworthy will be available for people to 'drop in' and ask him a question, express an opinion or make a complaint.

Whether it's about a council service, future plans for Chorley or an idea for improving the way the council works it's an opportunity for people to have their voice heard.

"We're entering a really important part of the year when we come to set the budget so it's important that we continue to listen to residents across the borough so that we can concentrate on providing the services that they want," said Coun Goldsworthy

"People can come and talk to me about any particular topic from bin collections to street cleanliness and parks to housing – I want to know what matters to you and how we can make sure you get the best possible service from the council."

To take part all you need to do is come to the Town Hall during one of the monthly slots, there is no need to make an appointment, and if you want you can submit a question in advance.

The next session will be held on Thursday, February 10, between 5pm and 6pm. The one after that will be held on Thursday, March 24.

If you want to submit a question in advance write to us at: Leader Listens, Chorley Council, Town Hall, Market Street, PR7 1DP or email contact@chorley.gov.uk and put 'Leader Listens' in the title.
