There is just over a week left for residents to have their say on plans for creating a new council for Kidderminster.

Wyre Forest District Council is asking for opinions on its proposals for how the new town council should be set up.

The questionnaire is available online at and closes on Thursday 17 September 2015.  It covers a range of issues including how many councillors and the areas they would represent, the assets it is suggested should be transferred from WFDC to the new council and the temporary arrangements for membership of the new council before elections in May 2016. 

The webpage has a frequently asked questions section which explains the background to the recommendations.  It is suggested that people read this before completing the questionnaire.

Paper versions of the background information and questionnaire are available at the Worcestershire Hub at Kidderminster Town Hall, Kidderminster Library and from Wyre Forest House, Finepoint Way, Kidderminster.

Councillor Marcus Hart, Leader of Wyre Forest District Council, said:

“The way Kidderminster is governed is changing and this consultation is a chance for people to help shape how the new council is set up.  We would encourage residents to take a few minutes to read through our proposals and give us their feedback.  The comments will be considered at Council on Wednesday 30 September.”
