During the meetings the public are encouraged to have their say about local issues that effect their lives and voice their concerns and problems.
∑ Each forum is managed by people from the local community who have expressed an interest. In this way local people will be involved in how the forums develop and decide such things as how meetings are organised and who chairs them.
