2021/22 budget consultation

The Council needs to decide its priorities for the coming year and is asking members of the community to help decide where efforts should be concentrated.  At this early stage the Council is asking for ideas and suggestions.  Any suggestions will be considered by the Council and may be taken forward into the formal budget process (which may involve estimates  and formal costings).

How do I contribute to the discussion?

May Council meeting

There will be a meeting of Desborough Town Council at four o’clock on the afternoon of Thursday 21 May 2020.

The meeting will make use of remote access through the internet because of the current pandemic and lockdown.

Log in details will be posted on the Council’s website and on the agenda when available.  The Council is using its best endeavours to make access to the meeting as easy as possible.

Owing to the remote nature of attendance, any members of the public wishing to address the Council are requested to provide details to the Town Clerk before the meeting either by emailing the usual form (available here Your Right to Speak at Council Meetings) to the Town Clerk on clerk@desboroughtowncouncil.gov.uk or by sending the same information to the Town Clerk on clerk@desboroughtowncouncil.gov.uk or even by providing the same information to the Town Clerk using the email us facility on this website.

April Council meeting

Owing to the ongoing pandemic, the meeting of the Council originally scheduled for 16 April 2020 will not be held.  The Council expects that a meeting will be held in May (the expected date is 21 May 2020) but anticipates this being a remote meeting with Councillors and staff taking part remotely and with press and public being able to follow proceedings (as normally as possible) online.

Details of how to join the meeting will be available on the website and on the Council’s notice board when they are available.

If there is a need to convene an urgent Council meeting in the meantime then that can still be done.
