12-16 Oct: Local Democracy Week

"Local Democracy Week runs from 12 to 16 October and gives local people new opportunities to be listened to and influence our decisions.

Residents are being encouraged to submit questions or book an early place for one of the highlights of the week, Question Time Brent, which takes place on Tuesday 13 October at Brent Civic Centre. This meeting will be streamed live on the night.

The theme for this debate will be: 'Living together in multicultural societies: respect, dialogue, interaction'.

You can submit questions now via Twitter using the hashtag #QuestionTimeBrent or book a free ticket online (places are limited, so book early). Alternatively contact Chris Young on 020 8937 4349 or email to book tickets and/or submit questions.

On Wednesday 14 October, residents can join councillors for tea and a chat on the sofa in the Brent Civic Centre foyer, from 8am to 4pm. No need to book, just turn up.

"Local Democracy Week is an annual, Europe wide event which 'promotes and fosters democratic participation at a local level through public initiatives which involve citizens'.

"Find out more about Local Democracy Week on the Council of Europe website.

"Feedback from discussions during Local Democracy Week will be considered by councillors and so help shape the future of the borough."
