With a population approaching 133,000, Elmbridge is an attractive place to live, to work and to raise a family and it’s our role as the local Council to keep it that way.
To do this we work with numerous partner organisations such as Surrey County Council, Public Health England and Surrey Police, but it all starts with knowing what our residents’ value about the Borough – what is important? what makes them stay? what would make them leave?
One element of our engagement with residents has been a series of eight public meetings called - ‘Your Voice Matters’. These have been held from September to November this year and are a great opportunity for our residents to speak to us directly about what matters most to them.
Of course, they also give us a chance to engage with our residents about how we are supporting our communities.
The events start at 7pm with an informal drop-in session where Councillors, partners and relevant Elmbridge officers are available to answer any queries. This is followed by a presentation and Q&A session with the Leader of Elmbridge Borough Council.
With two events remaining, it's safe to say that the topics discussed at each event have been varied – everything from car parking, to the provision of community halls, to development and infrastructure in the Borough.
These events form part of our commitment to the people of Elmbridge - we will work tirelessly to protect the interests of our people and our place and we are committed to Elmbridge being a community where no one gets left behind.
