Since being elected the new Council has appointed its Chairman (Mick Holloway), Vice Chairman (Chris Gravett) and has attended to a number of statutory and on-going matters. The Council has agreed a number of short-term priorities and formed working parties to look at the most pressing issues; these include Finance Reporting, Human Resource Processes, Standing Orders, Communication Strategy & Skate Park. There is a lot we must do to make the Council both effective and efficient, and we will be pressing ahead with this as quickly as possible. It is anticipated that over the next few months there will be lots of opportunities for the community and council to work together towards delivering a better Arlesey. The Neighbourhood Plan is one such opportunity, and we would like to thank everybody who has participated in the first stage of the process and helped gather the views of residents.
