WEYMOUTH residents are being given the opportunity to ask the town council about important local issues at the winter Town Assembly later this month.

Weymouth Town Council’s virtual event takes place on Monday, November 29 at 7pm. Members of the public are encouraged to submit any questions on the work of the council by 4pm on Friday, November 26.

Town councils must hold these meetings annually, with the last Town Assembly taking place in March. Councillors decided it was important to hold two assemblies a year.

Cllr Colin Huckle, Mayor of Weymouth, said: “The Town Assembly is an excellent opportunity for residents to ask questions and discuss any community issues.

“It’s also a chance to hear more about the work of the town council and how it is working in the interests of residents, the business community and visitors to our popular town.”

To submit a question, email:office@weymouthtowncouncil.org.uk by 4pm on Friday, November 26.
