Visit to Newham Council

UpRising participants had the opportunity to witness local democracy in action by sitting in on a cabinet meeting at Newham Town Hall in East Ham, on 11 February 2010. The meeting was chaired by the borough’s Mayor, Sir Robin Wales. Some of the topics discussed at the meeting were the final proposals for the Council’s Budget Framework and Council Tax Levy for 2010/11, CRB checks for elected members, the Dedicated Schools Budget, the Religious Education Agreed Syllabus 2010 and the planning briefs for rebuilding four schools in Newham.
