Chance to shape the future at Woodley Community Forum
September 03, 2012
A forum chairman is inviting residents to play their part in Woodley’s future at a town discussion.
Woodley Community Forum, which launched in July to discuss issues and infrastructure surrounding new housing developments arriving around the town, will hold its first town discussion at the Oakwood Centre on Wednesday.
Chairman Tom Clark said: “This is a chance for people to put forward their questions.
“The meeting will have an open Question Time-style debate, which we will then follow up with five feedback sessions from October to the end of the year.”
Doors open at the centre in Headley Road at 6.30pm for a 7pm start to the debate. Questions can be submitted in advance via the forum’s Facebook page.
“This is not a political forum – it has no allegiance to a party – it is a community forum,” Mr Clark said.
“With more than 1,000 dwellings coming to Woodley, the town is growing by more than 15 per cent which is a big change.
“I hope we can get a good turnout next Wednesday – this is a chance to say what we want to go into the town to make it a better place.”
