The meetings are aimed at providing an opportunity for residents to hear from Councillor Phil Murphy, cabinet member for resources, and ask any questions that they may have.

The Access for All meeting will focus on the Monmouthshire County Council budget proposals affecting vulnerable residents.

Cllr Phil Murphy said: “I hope that residents are able to come along to the meetings. They really are a great opportunity to become informed and to share their thoughts on the proposals.

“We have tried to provide as many avenues for our communities to get involved, we have an online survey and we will listen to feedback.

“I feel the Access for All meeting will provide an opportunity for our most vulnerable residents to have their voices heard.”

The council has also said they hope that residents’ confidence in them is increased after the meetings.

The first event will be Tuesday, January 14, at 6.30pm at Chepstow Community Hub, 9 Bank Street, NP75EN.

The second event will be Wednesday, January 22 at 6.30pm at Abergavenny Library, Baker Street, NP7 5BD.

The Access for All forum will be taking place on Friday, January 17 from 11am until 2pm at St Mary’s Priory Centre in Abergavenny.

Residents who are not able to attend the meetings can view a short film, look at all the proposals and share their views via an online survey by visiting the Monmouthshire County Council website, at
