FENLANDER: Youngsters offer their views on what council should make its top priorities

YOUNG people are the latest voice to offer their views on what should be made top priorities by Fenland District Council, as part of the council’s ongoing corporate consultation.

These were given at a recent meeting of the Youth District Council, attended by FDC officers, to ensure that the views of young people are taken into consideration.

The youngsters were responding to the current corporate plan consultation which asks Fenland residents to highlight which services provided by FDC they believe the council should make its top priorities over the next year.

Councillor Steve Garratt, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for young people, said: “It’s fantastic to see the YDC getting involved with the rest of the community in helping to set our priorities. Their views are very important and their voice deserves to be heard.”

This exercise was part of FDC consultation programme to ensure all community groups in Fenland have an opportunity to have their say. The consultation period ends on 7 February, so there still time for you to have your say.

Copies of the questionnaire are still available in the four Fenland @ your service shops, the three leisure centres and online at www.fenland.gov.uk/your views. All responses will be treated in strict confidence.
