Council to listen to residents

COMMUNITY leaders will be on hand to listen to residents’ concerns when High Peak Borough Council throws open its doors next week.

The Octagon, in Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens, will host the Open Day, on Wednesday September 21, from 2pm to 7pm.

Council leader Caitlin Bisknell will be present with deputy Anthony McKeown to find out what the authority can do to make the High Peak an even better place for residents, visitors and businesses.

The open day will give people a chance to find out about the services available and how to highlight any problems.

Cllr Bisknell said: “More than anything else, Anthony and I really want to hear what we can do to make life as good as it can be for everyone living, working or visiting in the High Peak.”

The event will also focus on how High Peak and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council have saved £3m and how they will save a further £3.3m over the next three years.
