Your chance to quiz Islington Council’s chief at a ‘budget special’ Leader’s Question Time

Islington residents are invited to put their questions to Islington Council Leader Cllr Richard Watts and hear more about the council’s investment in a fairer Islington, at a public event on 11th February.

The Leader’s Question Time ‘budget special’ will be held at the Vibast Community Centre, 167 Old St, EC1V 9NH, from 6.30-8pm.

This is a chance for residents to ask questions about the council’s spending priorities for 2020-21, including investing an extra £600,000 on measures to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG) and £60m to help deliver Islington’s target of 550 new council homes by 2022. Residents can also ask questions about any local issues that matter to them.

The meeting will be chaired by Father David Allen from St Clement’s Church in King Square. 

Cllr Watts said: "This Question Time is a chance for local people to find out more about how our spending priorities over the next year – homes, safety, jobs and the environment – will help to make Islington a fairer place for all, as well as raising any local concerns they may have.

“I’d like to thank Fr David Allen for chairing the event, and I look forward to hearing from lots of Islington residents on the 11th.”

To submit a question in advance, or if you need an interpreter to attend the event, please email leadersquestions@islington.gov.uk. Questions can also be asked on the night.
