Langley residents prepare to grill Slough CEO over transport misery
Langley residents will have the opportunity to tackle interim CEO of Slough Borough Council on failed transport schemes and other problems tomorrow night.
The interim CEO of Slough Borough Council, Roger Parkin, will be the guest speaker when Langley Neighbourhood Forum meets tomorrow night.
The meeting will be the first opportunity since Langley Forum representatives grilled Fiona Mactaggart and Dominic Grieve, then the Slough and Beaconsfield MPs, over plans for a permanent closure of Chequers Bridge. Back in February they secured a commitment from the MPs to push for a joined-up approach to future engineering projects earmarked for the vicinity and the continuance of a through route North-South route.
Over 100 residents turned up to the LNF meeting in October to voice concern over the closure. Slough still intends to close the road at Chequers Bridge to allow the Western Rail Access to Heathrow to go ahead.
All three Langley councillors have been invited to the meeting to hear resident concerns about Langley.
Mr Parkin, who took over from Ruth Bagley following her abrupt departure last year, was formally Strategic Director of Customer & Community Services at Slough Borough Council. The CEO post remains officially vacant, but councillors have been told that a wholesale review of senior management positions will be carried out soon.
The meeting will take place from 7pm tomorrow (Tuesday, 20th June) at Langley Hall Primary Academy, Langley, opposite the Harrow Market.
