The item was introduced by the Area Manager who made the meeting aware of the progress being made to develop the Community Magazine. It was noted that the articles were all currently with Communications for editing, and a proposed layout had been circulated for comments. Councillors noted that the cost for distribution was slightly below that expected at £2,490.40.
Members noted that a draft of the magazine would be circulated for comment in addition to a list of potential advertisers, prior to publishing.
The meeting discussed the possibility of having some articles featured in the local press. Also mentioned was the production of another Area Review, which offered another opportunity to promote the positive work of the Area Council and Ward Alliance in more detail than in the magazine. It was suggested that an article on the use of Section 106 monies could be featured.
RESOLVED that the update be noted.
