Statement of Wymondham Town Council Governance Review Group
In July 2016, Wymondham Town Council agreed to set up a Working Group, including independent representatives, to review the Council’s governance arrangements and suggest improvements to ensure the Council operates in an open and transparent way moving forward.
The Group has decided to focus their work on three key areas:
- Standing Orders and Decision Making Processes;
- The Council’s relationship with the Public and how it communicates; and
- The internal relationships and roles of the Councillors and the Clerk.
The Group has already begun to consider the first two key areas, including feedback already received from the public, but there is still time for you to let us know what you think. The Group would be delighted to hear from members of the public who want to put forward opinions, linked to these three areas, and in particular where they think the Council is doing well or in need of improvement. If you would like to comment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call 01508 533954 or write to Leah Mickleborough or Emma Goddard at the South Norfolk Council offices, Cygnet Court, Long Stratton, NR15 2XE, by close of play on Friday 11 November 2016.
The Group will be holding an open public meeting in order to share the recommendations it will put forward to the Town council. Members of the public will be invited to comment on the recommendations and share their views on the Group’s thoughts. A date is yet to be set for this meeting.
