Basildon Council's 'Let's Talk' events a success
3:29pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
Basildon Council has dubbed its ‘Let’s Talk’ events a success after its final scheduled visit to Basildon.
Hundreds of residents took up the offer of a chat with councillors and senior officers about what matters to them and whether they agree with the council’s current plans at events in Billericay , Wickford and Basildon.
Cllr Tony Ball said the events had gone well and a second round of events was being considered.
“The job of a council is to do the best for its local area and people. But local government can no longer do everything - our philosophy is a hand up, not a hand out and that is what creating opportunity is all about.
Future events may be held in Laindon and Pitsea.
