Your opportunity to probe the Council’s progress

The Birmingham Independent Improvement Panel, appointed by the government to monitor Birmingham City Council’s improvement programme, has announced plans for its third public meeting. The meeting will be held at 12 noon on Monday 14 December in the Council Chamber.

One year on from the Kerslake Review, the focus of the public meeting will be the City Council’s report – addressed to the residents of the city – about the progress it has made in implementing Lord Kerslake’s recommendations. Panel members will put questions to the City Council’s new leader, chief executive and opposition leaders about its progress. The Panel is inviting Birmingham residents to submit to the Panel, in advance the meeting, the questions they would like the Panel to ask.
The Council’s progress report will be published on the Council’s website on 7 December. Residents are invited to submit their questions relating to the report to a special email address by 10 December.
Commenting on this call for questions the Panel’s Chair, John Crabtree, said
‘December is an important milestone for the Council. A year on from the Kerslake review the Council will be reporting directly to the city’s residents about the improvements it has made and those it still needs to achieve. We want to give as many residents as possible the chance to raise questions about the improvements that are most important to them.
We are therefore inviting residents to send us the questions they would like the Panel to ask. The Panel will put as many residents’ questions to the Council’s leadership as it can on 14 December. This will enable residents who can’t attend the meeting in person to have their questions answered as well as some of those who are in the audience.’
Members of the public can attend the meeting in person or watch a webcast of the meeting on the Council’s website
Book to attend on the day residents can book via Eventbrite
