|Havering Councillors Sharpen Online Image|
8 October 2003
The London Borough of Havering has set up a web presence for each of its 54 councillors to make elected representatives more accessible to citizens.
The Council's website now features profiles of every councillor, details of the committees and bodies they sit on and their surgery hours, and will list contact details such as email addresses and telephone numbers. The initiative has involved councillors in the choice of materials made available online and comes in advance of Local Democracy Week, which runs from 13-19 October.
