The Council, together with the Police, Cambridgeshire County Council, Sanctuary Group and Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service are working to ensure that the community can have a say in how services are delivered. Each panel is made up of Parish, District & County Councillors. Local residents are welcome to attend and raise their own issues of concern. At Panel meetings there is discussion about local concerns such as crime, anti-social behaviour, health, environment, transport, highways, housing and children & young people's issues. Decisions are made about which issues are most important to focus efforts on in the next 3 months. Each Panel also agrees what actions need to be completed between meetings and who will be responsible.
If you have a pressing issue that cannot wait until the next panel date, please contact customer services on 01353 616312 or raise this via ShapeYourPlace.
East Cambridgeshire District Council has teamed up with Cambridgeshire County Council, The Police and Fire Service to launch a new community owned website, 'ShapeYourPlace' (SYP). SYP lets local people start and join in conversations about how you can improve your local area. You can communicate directly with service providers about issues that affect you. Common issues raised on SYP will be raised at Neighbourhood Panel meetings and likewise issues raised via Neighbourhood Panel meetings will be posted as blogs on SYP. This is to improve communication through various methods about current issues and topics that affect your community. Visitors to East Cambridgeshire's ShapeYourPlace website are able to:
- Report issues and suggest ideas
- See what has been reported and join in conversations with other residents
- Receive updates about how issues are being resolved
- Write blog posts about local activities and news
Visit http://shapeyourplace.org/ and join in the conversation!
