Future Leigh-on-Sea

A series of workshops are taking place around the Southend-on-Sea Borough to get people talking about what their ‘vision’ is for the future of their area. This is part of the Borough Council’s ‘Our Town, Our Future’ project. Anyone can come along to these – they don’t have to book in advance or prepare in any way. 

The point of the workshops is not just to hear people’s views in the manner of a traditional ‘consultation’ but to bring people together to start developing new ideas that they might want to take forward themselves. We can help the Borough Council develop a new approach to involving local people in discussions about the future, and to build the level of participation in shaping ideas to build that future – on everything from environment to employment to reducing isolation. 

The first workshop will be taking place at Wesley Methodist Church on Elm Road, from 10am - 12pm on Saturday 30th September. Just bring yourselves!
