Essex County Council wants feedback from roadshow's Clacton visit
2:41pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
AN event will be held in Clacton for residents to discuss issues and priorities with Essex County Council.
The roadshow, which is visiting several locations around Essex, will see councillors and staff cover a range of topics with passers-by, including roads, lighting and bus services.
Essex County Council will be receiving less cash from the Government and is looking for feedback on what should take priority with the remaining funding.
Councillor David Finch, leader of Essex County Council, said: “Your Essex, Let’s Talk is a chance for us to get out of County Hall and come and meet residents and have a discussion about the financial pressures we face, the increase in demand for our services and the reduction in government funding we receive.
“We have to be more imaginative and innovative when it comes to finding solutions to these challenges and we need the public to help us shape our decisions.”
The event will take place at Clacton Factory Outlet on Wednesday from 10am-5pm.
