Driffield Town Council is holding three consultation events on Thursday October 3 and Thursday October 10 on the market, adjacent to the Buck Hotel, between 9am and 3pm and on Saturday October 19 in Market Place between 10am and 3pm.
The Town Council are inviting residents of Driffield to let them know what they want for the town and what their priorities are.
The Mayor, Coun Heather Venter, said: “We have tried councillor surgeries in the past with very little response, however it was felt this time, we should go out to the people so this is why we will be on the market talking to people and encouraging them to tell us what they think about Driffield and how we can make it better.”
The consultation events are being held prior to the forthcoming budget setting meetings in November and it is hoped that feedback from the public will mould and help set spending plans for the coming financial year. In addition, it will be an opportunity for residents to let the town council know their views on the Mortimer’s Mill project and other things that are happening in the next few months, such as the public piece of art currently being discussed.
Clerk Claire Binnington said: “The Town Council provide a myriad of essential services to the town, from public conveniences to gritting and salting, we provide the summer baskets and bedding, the markets and projects to revitalise the town centre as well as other things, we are hoping to promote our work to the residents, while at the same time, engaging in open communication about what more we can do and what residents see as priorities”.
