Council housing roadshow

THE THIRD in a series of housing consultation roadshows will be held in Montrose Town Hall on Saturday (October 22).

Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about Angus Council housing services, and how they can influence their planning, improvement and delivery.

Roadshows have already been successfully held for the Forfar/Kirriemuir and the Carnoustie, Arbroath, Monifieth and Sidlaws areas.

These are the first events of their kind to be organised by the authority’s local community planning teams, and they give tenants and residents alike the opportunity to voice their opinions.

The council is seeking to expand the number of people participating in this process and will be promoting involvement through a number of different methods which they say will be convenient to residents.

Delegates at the roadshows are asked about which matters particularly interest them.

Staff will then describe the opportunities to become involved.

The roadshows also provide an opportunity for people to receive information on topical matters including changes to the housing benefit system.

They can also speak privately to staff who can help them with housing enquiries, anti-social behaviour issues and benefits advice.

The third roadshow, for the Montrose and Brechin areas, will start in Montrose Town Hall at 10am.

Lunch will provided for those attending.

The afternoon session will end with the Angus Council house garden awards presentation to the winners.

There are still some places left and those wishing to attend can register by contacting Beverley Gibb, telephone Montrose (01674) 666116.
