Vitality of High Streets and Town Centres Task and Finish Forum

What does this Forum do?

The Overview and Scrutiny  Committee can set up a Forum to specifically undertake a detailed review into a topic.  Membership can be drawn from the entire Council to best use the skills of individual Councillors.  Experts and witnesses can be called to provide evidence to the Forum.  The Forum produces a final report, containing recommendations, for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to consider.  If agreed, these recommendations go on to the Cabinet and/or Council for a decision.

This Forum has been set up to look at the High Streets and Town Centres of the seven main towns of East Devon: Axminster, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth, Honiton, Ottery St Mary, Seaton and Sidmouth.  They will be looking at each town and talking with representatives from each area.  These include the Town Council and local Chamber of Commerce amongst others.
