Tell us about issues that are important to you

Folkestone & Hythe District Council is inviting residents to suggest topics for councillors to investigate over the next financial year.


The Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee reviews decisions made by councillors, looks at the authority's performance, and considers issues affecting the district or its residents.

Its work is planned over a financial year and staff and councillors are now planning the programme for 2019/20 - and they want your input.

Committee Chairman, Cllr Peter Gane, said it was just one of the ways the Council listened to residents and businesses.

 As well as reviewing the work of the Council, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee has an important role to play in investigating issues that are important in our communities.
We have some ideas and we are talking to parish and town councillors and other partners, but I know there are many individuals with strong views about areas where things could be improved or altered.
This is your opportunity to put those ideas forward and to let us know what you think we should be talking about. Cllr Peter Gane, Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Suggestions need not be limited to the Council or its services, but cannot include planning applications, licensing, housing appeals or disciplinary issues. Previous topics have included parking and controlled parking zones, developers' financial contributions and the policy around replacement bins.

To put forward your idea, email for a form. The deadline for submissions of completed forms is Friday, 22 March.
