Residents who live in Leyton, Forest and Grove Green wards will have the chance to elect a new Community Chair and Vice Chair at the Leyton and Whipps Cross Community Council meeting on Monday (November 6).
Candidates who have put themselves forward for nomination will be introduced and residents will also have the chance to put forward their own candidates as well as voting for the positions.
Monday’s meeting will be an important opportunity for Leyton and Whipps Cross Residents to take part in grass roots democracy and have a real say in the future of Leyton.
Before I was elected to the Council and became the Councillor Chair, I was the Community Council’s Community Vice Chair. I really enjoyed the role and so I would urge interested residents to come along and participate.
Other issues on the agenda include an update on the work of the Police Safer Neighbourhood Team and their impact on crime in the Leyton and Whipps Cross Area and a presentation by the Metropolitan Police about the proposed Hainault Road custody facility.
Alongside local councillors, representatives from the Safer Neighbourhood Team, health services and Neighbourhood Watch will also attend the meeting and there will be an Olympic Park exhibition including maps and plans of the area.
The meeting will take place at George Mitchell School in Farmer Road, Leyton, from 7.30pm on Monday (November 6).
