Kirklees Council parks and green spaces manager Rob Dalby will attend to respond to questions about the service standards affecting local parks.

Noreen Beck from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing will brief the committee on the estates and environmental schemes discussed at the recent Dewsbury and Mirfield Area Forum, and applications for funding from the district committee's budget will be considered at the meeting.

“This is a packed and interesting agenda that includes key priority issues for the District Committee; emotional health and wellbeing of local young people; service standards for our parks and open spaces; and an update on local policing and crime management. I would encourage anyone interested in any or all of these items, to come along and join us on January 19,” said committee chair Coun Darren O'Donovan.
