Residents - Voice your View
Each Board meeting provides an opportunity for Residents to voice their view. If a Resident has a question that they would like the Board to respond to, they should write to or phone Beverley Gallacher, Corporate Services Manager, on 01702 212649, or email any question one week prior to the Board Meeting to beverleygallacher@seh.southend.gov.uk  The actual response will be brought to the Board meeting and responded to in the open session. 

Any issues raised in this way are published on this website, along with a summary of our response, which you can view by clicking here.
