Support the formation of "Meir Town Council"
MEIR MATTERS - LIKE NEVER BEFORE!
The Kings Arms, The Broadway Cinema, Barclays Bank, Britannia Building Society - we’ve lost them all! Why? Because we are not the decision makers.
BUT THAT COULD ALL CHANGE WITH YOUR HELP!
We want to bring home some of the power and decision making. We want to form MEIR TOWN COUNCIL.
Stoke-on-Trent unlike all other parts of Staffordshire has no Town or Parish Council’s. That means all of the decisions that affect our area are made my people in Stoke who don’t live here!
By creating a Town Council it means local people make local decisions.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council is a unitary authority, which basically means it makes its own decisions and does not report in to Staffordshire County Council. This means it’s a big area and so any money is spread thinly, wide and far
By having Meir Town Council it means we would have a budget to be used solely in Meir for the benefit of Meir people.
The budget can be used to support local charities and community groups, more facilities, reduce crime, litter as well as making the area more attractive to live.
Your signature today will bring us all one step closer to bringing some of the power home!.
