The Area Council Manager introduced this item and provided members with an update on the development of the North Area Council Community Magazine. The final version has now been signed off, copies are being prepared and have been booked in with distributors and Royal Mail. There has been some pressure from central Communications to include corporate messages in the Community Magazine, but members felt that this should be balanced with good quality descriptive information and good quality photographs. Members were also concerned that producing the magazine will increase the Area Team’s workload.
RESOLVED that Members continue to support the project, including the collation of material, and note the timescales for publication.
