Meeting On 'All Things Warsop' To Take Place
In March this year Mayor Kate Allsop announced that she would be setting up a special Mayoral Commission for Warsop Parish. The first meeting of the Commission is due to take place on 20 July to talk about ‘all things Warsop’.
The Commission will be chaired by Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Robin Wilson who has connections to the area. The Mayor has extended a personal invitation to Ben Bradley - the new MP for Mansfield, as well as Chairman of the Parish Council of Warsop, Warsop District Councillors and the Warsop County Councillor, public service representatives including police, health and fire, along with local church and education leaders.
Attendance at these meetings is by invitation only- all politicians who represent Warsop have been invited. The Commission will be expected to work at pace and remain focused as the aim is to produce a report at the end of the year to inform and influence decision makers.
Mayor Kate Allsop said, “I attended the Public Meeting on the future of Meden Sports Centre and I listened to the concerns of Councillors and members of the public. The Commission is a direct result of this and I would like housing, public transport, economic regeneration and leisure to be just a few of the topics that the Commission looks into.
“I want the Commission to be independent and unfettered by historical baggage and look at ‘all things Warsop’ with a fresh and out of the box approach. Members of the Commission will need to leave political interests outside of the meetings so that we can concentrate on the local issues.”
The first meeting will take place on 20 July at Meden Sports Centre, where terms of reference will be agreed for the Commission’s work. Further meetings will be held each month.
This is an opportune time for Warsop residents to email suggestions to the Mayor for the Commission to consider.
Emails can be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or letters to The Executive Mayor, Mansfield District Council, Civic Centre, Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield NG19 7BH.
