Get involved

There are a number of ways in which you can get involved with the Eastern Shrewsbury Local Joint Committee.

Attend a meeting

The Local Joint Committee (LJC) meets several times each year at a variety of different venues across the LJC area. You can attend these meetings and put forward questions to your local councillors about local issues that are important to you.

The meetings are also attended by staff from Shropshire Council and other partner organisations, such as the police, fire service and Severnside Housing who answer questions about how their service is delivered in your area. Follow the local meetings link for details of when the meetings take place.

Contact your community enablement officer

If you have an issue you would like the LJC to discuss you can contact the community action officer who will make sure the item is discussed at the next meeting.

The community enablement officer can also help with issues outside the meeting, by following up issues with the Shropshire Councillor for your area, and by working with other services within Shropshire Council. The community enablement officer can help coordinate a response from other organisations to issues such as anti social behaviour and environmental maintenance.   

Funding for your project

If you have a project that involves local people and needs funding you could contact your community enablement officer, who can look into funding sources available to support your project, such as lottery funding.
