Welcome to the Community Meetings Homepage
A pilot scheme was introduced in 2012 to trial a different approach to ward community meetings. Wards taking part in the trial included Charnwood, Freemen and Westcotes. Eyres Monsell will also join the scheme this year, with community action days replacing traditional ward community meetings.
Ward community meetings were introduced by the City Council in April 2008, replacing the old area committees. Meetings take place in the main at quarterly intervals, bringing the Council closer to communities in the 22 wards that cover Leicester. They give residents the opportunity to work with Council departments and other agencies, such as the Police and Primary Care Trust, to identify local issues and improve their neighbourhoods. As such local residents are very welcome to turn up and talk to councillors and officers about anything that's affecting their ward.
Each ward meeting has produced and maintained a Ward Action Plan. These plans highlight priorities identified by local residents and determine how the ward meeting can make a difference against those priorities. They also provide a useful basis for assessing ward meeting grant applications (details of which are at: /councillors-democracy-and-elections/community-meetings/community-meetings-budgets)
Dates and locations of ward meetings are available through the links to the left of this page.
