Inner East Community Committee

Purpose of committee

Open Forums - Public Participation in Remote Community Committee Meetings

 

Although Community Committee meetings are currently being held remotely due to the restrictions introduced in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, there are still ways in which members of the community can observe and interact with Community Committee meetings:

 

To observe the meetings, members of the public can access the live webcast of the meeting, or watch it at a time convenient for them via the link to the YouTube webcast stream, which can be found on each individual committee meeting webpage (linked here).

 

Or, to make contributions towards the Committee’s ‘Open Forum’ item, members of the public are invited to make written submissions up to 3 working days in advance of the meeting on any matter which falls within the Committee’s terms of reference. These will be read out under this agenda item at the meeting and considered by the Community Committee.  Each submission can be no longer than 60 seconds in duration and a maximum of 3 submissions will be heard at each Committee meeting. To make an Open Forum submission for your Community Committee, please contactcommunitycommitteefunding@leeds.gov.uk. You will be contacted if your submission is to be heard. 

 

Community committees hold at least four public meetings a year, where ward councillors make decisions about services and priorities for the local area.

 

Community committees also host a series of workshops which consider issues that concern you and explore how you can influence decisions on things such as environmental improvements, community safety, health and wellbeing and employment.

 

Areas covered by Inner East Community Committee are:

  • Burmantofts and Richmond Hill
  • Gipton and Harehills
  • Killingbeck and Seacroft

 

The committee also allocates funding every year to both community projects and youth activities. Small grants of up to £500 and large grants over £500 are available.

 

For more information about the committee or details on how to make an application for funding please contact the Communities Team on: Email: east.north.east@leeds.gov.uk or telephone: 0113 3367644
