Over 700 hundred people took part. Town Mayor, Councillor Kate Buchanan said ‘Meltham Town Council will use what we learn to make sure that our planning reflects the priorities identified by Meltham residents, businesses and local groups. We can use the information to support bids for grant funding for the Meltham area. The information can also be used by other organisations in Meltham, as part of ongoing conversations about the area. None of this would have been possible without the support of our amazing team of volunteers who went out and had the conversations with Meltham residents, visitors and businesses – a big thank you to everyone involved’.
Detailed results will be available later in 2019 but the initial findings will be displayed at a drop in event on Wednesday 9 October in the Jubilee Room at the Carlile Institute in Meltham – the Town Council are encouraging everyone to come along and see the results. The event will be open from 11.00am to 7.00pm. The detailed results will also be available online for everyone to see.
