Cabinet on the road

Winchester City Council’s cabinet meetings are on the road and the next stop is Wickham.


Residents are invited to attend the meeting which will start at 16.30 on Wednesday 23 January 2019 at the Woodford Suite within the Wickham Centre, Mill Lane, Wickham.


For the last year, every other cabinet meeting has taken place in a different location around the district to make the meetings more accessible to residents living outside of Winchester city centre. The initiative aims to encourage people to interact with their elected representatives.


Leader of Council, Councillor Caroline Horrill said: “We want our cabinet meetings to be as accessible as possible to the whole district and by bringing our meetings to rural locations we hope to give our residents a unique insight into local democracy at work. The cabinet works in a transparent and open way and we would welcome any interested members of the public to join us.”


Cabinet meetings are normally open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Details of upcoming meetings can be found here: https://democracy.winchester.gov.uk/ieListMeetings.aspx?CommitteeId=136
