State of the Borough Debate 2019

For the first time, local residents are being invited to cast their votes on the topic of this year's State of the Borough Debate happening on Thursday 21 November 2019.

Lib Dem-run Kingston Council is committed to engaging with residents and businesses across the borough, and the topic which receives the most votes will be debated later this year with a panel of experts in that field.

Subjects cover everything from air quality and climate change, to sustainable transport and 20mph zones.

Lib Dem Councillor Tim Cobbett — who holds the portfolio for Engagement and Continuous Learning — said: “I'm delighted that we're giving residents the choice on what they'd like to discuss for the State of the Borough debate this year. This is a great opportunity to let us know what you think matters most about the future of the borough.

“We value all the feedback and want to ensure we spend time on problem-solving in whichever topic is chosen. We're committed to maximising engagement with our residents and it's important they have different platforms to voice their opinions.”

Residents can visit, send a freepost postcard to the Council, or drop a card into special postboxes situated at the Guildhall and in libraries across the borough.

Voting will close on Wednesday 31 July.
