Have your say on local issues – West Area Committee 26 November

Compass People often grumble about how hard it is to get their voice heard in the neighbourhood – well here's your chance to contribute to some important issues in disucssion with your local councillors.

Councillors local to our area meet in the 'West Area Committee' on 26 November and will discuss the following topics – i've translated them in brackets:

MAGPI and Holloway Ward SNT (policing and anti social behaviour)
Waste Management in Islington (the bins to you and me)
Planning Biref – Gifford Street Railway Embankment (the green bit behind Gifford Street and the top of Carnoustie Drive)
Review of sustainability standards within major developments (how green do big new buildings have to be)
Issues and Options Consultation for Development Management Policies and Site Specific Allocations Development Plan Documents (i couldn't understand this one but i think it is about the thematic approach the council will take to development – so it's important gobbledegook)

If you have any questions the endlessly helpful clerk Nodlaig.Stoddart@islington.gov.uk will help you out.  Or click for the agenda and papers which get published as the meeting gets closer.  The meeting will take questions from the attending public on all these issues.

Unfortunately the meeting will be a the Town Hall  – 7:30 pm Islington Town Hall, Upper Street, Islington, N1 2UD so it is a bit far away from Kings Cross.

These meetings are rarely a barrel of laughs, but it is democracy, being done live, not vaudeville.
