Cardiff Debate Moves on

Cardiff Logo smallThe Cardiff Debate continues apace over the summer with a series of drop-in workshops where people can have their say on the future of public services in the city.

The Debate, which was launched at the start of the summer, is a programme of events, workshops and discussions on how the City of Cardiff Council, its partners and local people can work together to meet the challenges of significantly reduced budgets and growing demand for services.

A number of very successful ‘on-street’ engagement exercises have already taken places in various part of the city when people were asked which services matter to them most and why and these sessions will continue throughout July and August.

The more in-depth drop-in workshops will provide people with an opportunity to let the Cardiff Debate team know in more detail about which services they use, ideas on how they may be delivered differently in the future and how the community can be more involved.

City of Cardiff Council Leader, Cllr Phil Bale, said: “It was very encouraging to see so many people getting involved in the first Cardiff Debate events in June. We heard from a wide range of people, many of whom feel very passionately about public services in the city, and it’s been very useful to hear their ideas on how services can be delivered in the future to ensure they are sustainable and meeting the needs of our communities.

“This is just the start of a process so residents, partners, voluntary and community groups will have more opportunities to get involved, make their views known and give us ideas for new approaches to meeting local needs.”
