"You will be speaking direct to the most senior officers for the area and we would urge anyone with any issues they want to raise, or problems they want to discuss,to log in and take part.

"Running it between 6pm and 8pm means that people who work during the day can log on and take part, and the beauty of holding it online means that whether it's on your computer, your tablet or your phone, you can join in the discussion and ask any questions you want.

"You can remain anonymous and don't have to give any personal details to take part, we are really just interested in finding out what local peoples' issues are so we can do something about them.
