Pilot drop in session to meet your councillors at 96 Shenley Road in Borehamwood
Members of the public had the chance to meet their town councillors to chat informally about issues affecting them.
Elstree and Borehamwood town councillors Sandra Parnell, Pat Strack, Clive Butchins and Farida Turner were in 96 Shenley Road yesterday morning for the first ever drop-in session.
Eight residents chatted to councillors about parking in Station Road, the removal of fly-tipped rubbish at Isopad House and Three Ways, dropped kerbs, streetlights being out and whether planning permission is needed for garden sheds.
Cllr Strack said the session had been an interesting experiment, however the council was keen to run evening drop-in sessions to ensure councillors who worked during the day could attend.
She said: “The topics for discussion were far ranging and surprising.
“In lighter moments religion was debated and the meaning of life. All was light hearted and we hope residents will come along to similar events.
“Thank you to the staff at 96 for making us so welcome."
