Councillors take to the streets for roving surgery

A new form of roving 'Street Surgeries' are being pioneered by Crookes councillors Craig Gamble Pugh and Anne Murphy, as part of efforts to reach out and understand local concerns.

"We want people to be able to bring issues and problems to our attention, and be as accessible as possible," said Craig, "so we will be out and about on the streets of Crookes and Crosspool listening to and helping local people." At a recent event, Craig was joined by local campaigners, knocked on several hundred doors and spoke to dozens of constituents.

"In a couple of hours, we picked up over 10 specific issues which we were then able to follow up for people, from problems with wheelie bins, questions about cycle routes, questions about housing and more." said Cllr Anne Murphy.
