Cardiff residents have the chance to air their views on the future of public services in the city by engaging in the Cardiff Debate in council-run venues across the city.
On-street engagement sessions and drop-in workshops at locations across the city continue throughout the summer as part of the Debate, an ongoing programme of events 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.
In addition to these events, the public now have a chance to submit their opinions by completing Cardiff Debate postcards and posting them in the Debate post box at a number of venues in the city, including a range of libraries and leisure centres.
Members of the public completing the postcards are asked which services matter most to them and their families, to put forward ideas on how the Council can do things differently to save money in the future and their views on how the community can get more involved.
Leader of the City of Cardiff Council, Cllr Phil Bale, said: “We want to make sure as many people as possible join in the Cardiff Debate to ensure we have a wide range of views on which services matter most to them and how services can be delivered differently in the future to make the best use of resources available to us.
“We’ve had good responses to the on-street engagement and workshop sessions that have already taken place but by placing these Cardiff Debate post boxes in our buildings across the city, we are providing people with a quick and convenient way of engaging in the Debate as they go about using our services.”
Cardiff Debate postcards and post boxes are now located at the city centre Advice Hub at Marland House, Butetown Hub, Llanrumney Hub, St Mellons Hub, Ely and Caerau Hub, Western Leisure Centre, Fairwater Leisure Centre, Maindy Leisure Centre, Llanishen Leisure Centre and County Hall.
Details of the latest on-street engagement sessions and drop-in workshops can also be found in Splott Library, Cathays Library, Plasnewydd Community Hall, Penylan Community Centre, Channel View Leisure Centre, STAR Leisure Centre, Central Library, Llandaff North Library, Radyr Library and Grangetown Library.
