Residents, local organisations, community leaders and businesses are invited to meet Cllr Gould to discuss the challenges in Camden, as well as the opportunities to work together to improve the borough for everyone.

This is an opportunity to ask questions and discuss ideas on issues ranging from housing and rubbish collections, to education and adult social care. The event will be chaired by the Headteacher of Netley School, Bavaani Nanthabalan, and will be broadcast live.

Cllr Gould will also be answering questions live on Twitter the morning after the event, Friday 14 December, between 9am and 12noon using the hashtag #AskGeorgia.

The event is part of the Council's response to feedback received during the development of Camden 2025, the borough's community vision. Residents spoke about the importance of being able to talk directly to their Councillors, and to be involved in local decisions that affect them.

Activity has so far included borough-wide citizens' assemblies, inviting the public and community organisations to lead council debate on issues like rough sleeping, community conversations about rising crime, and investing in community organisers.

The event is free to attend and tickets can be booked here.

Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) 

The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Camden Council.
The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.
We also aim to ensure that the ward boundaries reflect the interests and identities of local communities, as well as promoting effective local government.
To achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Camden.
You can find out more about the review here: Consultation on warding arrangements 27 November 2018 4 March 2019
