Lewes Town Council will hold the Town’s Annual Meeting on Thursday April 21st at 7.30pm in the Council Chamber in the Town Hall.
The Annual Town Meeting is an opportunity for the local electors of Lewes to meet with their Town Council to discuss matters of local interest.
The meeting is different from a usual council meeting in that it is driven by the public, rather than discussing council business. Residents are invited to ask any questions and share views they have about Lewes Town.
Questions can be asked in writing or on the night. Advance questions are preferred as it gives the chance to give a full answer. There is no obligation to attend the meeting if asking a question in advance. Questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered to the Town Hall reception.
At the meeting the Mayor, Councillor Stephen Catlin, will share a report about the Town Council’s activities in the last year, including the re-opening of the Malling Community Centre. There will also be a presentation from the PSCO, Eva Collins, and the Neighbourhood Policing Team Sergeant at Sussex Police.
The Mayor is looking forward to the opportunity to hear directly from residents, saying “it will be helpful if any questions can be submitted to me in writing prior to the meeting.” The Town Meeting is a unique chance for the public to have a dialogue with their council and understand what services are available for them in the Town.
Agendas for the meeting will be available at lewes-tc.gov.uk at least three days before the meeting.
