Tamworth’s first ever Question Time event is set to take place next month, and they need you to get involved to make it a success.

The event is taking place at Tamworth Assembly Rooms on Wednesday October 16th, when Tamworth borough councillors, the police and Staffordshire County Council will all be outlining their plans for the future, and answering your questions.

Chaired by the Tamworth Herald editor Gary Phelps, the event will be split into themes looking at ‘Safer Tamworth’, future plans for the town centre, housing needs and a section for general questions.

The proposed panel will consist of: the leader of Tamworth Borough Council, Cllr Daniel Cook; deputy leader of Tamworth Borough Council, Cllr Rob Pritchard; leader of the Labour group, Cllr John Faulkner and deputy leader of the Labour group, Cllr Richard McDermid.  Other representatives will include Tamworth Borough Council chief executive Tony Goodwin, the police and Staffordshire County Council.

Alternatively email or telephone 01827 709618 to reserve a ticket. The event is currently limited to 100 seats.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Daniel Cook, said, “This event is part of our ‘Tamworth Listens’ initiative and I hope as many people as possible will attend.  We want to know what people think about where they live and work and what we, as a council, can do to improve it.

“It will also give me and colleagues the change to discuss with you what we are currently working on and our plans for the future.”
