Riverside area team

Riverside area team buildingThe Riverside area, one of seven areas of the city, is made up of the Drypool, Myton, St Andrew’s and Newington wards and it has a population of 44,300 (2001 census).

The area team co-ordinates many services in the area including streetcare, housing and parks and gardens. The team also works closely with partner organisations including Humberside Police, NHS Hull, community wardens, children and young people’s services and local community and voluntary groups, to address the issues that you tell us are your community priorities.

How to get involved

You can get involved in making sure your area team knows what issues matter to you and your community. You can do this by attending any of the following meetings or getting in touch with us in any way detailed at the bottom of the page.

Riverside area committee

The Riverside area committee is made up of 11 elected councillors who make sure the council’s work is appropriate for what local people need. The meetings held monthly and are open to the public. You can submit questions, in writing, to be put to the committee. This should be done in advance or on the day. Up to 15 minutes will be dedicated to responding to public questions at each meeting.

Ward and neighbourhood forums

Ward and neighbourhood forums are informal meetings held on a ward level every three months. All residents are welcome to attend and raise issues relating to their neighbourhood. These issues can then be dealt with by the local ward councillors, the Riverside area team and our partners.

Community safety priority meetings

At a community safety priority meeting, you can have your say about what community safety measures are prioritised in your ward over the next six months. You can also find out what has been done over the previous six months to make your ward safer.
