The Local Area Committees have launched a citywide survey to discover more about what residents think and feel locally.
Watch out for your handy guide to your Local Area Committees!
Information about Sheffield’s new Local Area Committees (LACs) is being sent to every household in the city this week.
Residents are encouraged to keep the paper newsletter as a handy reference guide, which gives all the relevant contact details and information on how people can get involved with their Local Area Committee.
The LACs are designed to bring decision-making on local issues closer to local people, giving residents a bigger say in what happens in their neighbourhood.
Council leader Cllr Terry Fox said:
“LACs will engage, empower and enable local people to shape where they live, work and play.
“Please email us, phone us, write to us, and look out for future Local Area Committee meeting dates – we want to hear from you.”
All residents are being encouraged to complete a survey, which remains open until 31 October.
Residents can get the LACs newsletter in alternative formats by calling 0114 273 4567 and selecting option 7. A paper version of the survey is also available.
