The Petuaria Community Forum held its inaugural meeting on 26th January at the Petuaria Centre on Welton Road, Brough. The meeting was chaired by Councillor Tony Galbraith. Although the Town Council is keen to facilitate its formation, the Petuaria Community Forum will operate independently.
The group was formed in response to a need which was identified during the development of the Community Led Plan. A questionnaire distributed to residents revealed a demand within the local community for a forum in which local businesses and residents can voice opinions and concerns.
The January meeting was well attended by representatives of local businesses, voluntary organisations, the Town Council and the steering group for the Community Led Plan.
