Four public meetings are being held for those who want to join the discussion with local councillors, council officers and community groups. Meetings from 6-8pm, at the dates & venues below. An overview can be read here.

We are encouraging local ward committees, neighbourhood forums and organisations in sectors such as higher education, media and public affairs and business, to organise their own debates on community governance and send us their feedback.
After the consultation results have been analysed, we will publish a draft response to the Sutton Coldfield community governance petition in the summer and let residents have a final say. We will continue to work with Birmingham residents to create a flexible community governance model that can develop according to changing needs.
