Brent mag goes quarterly

Our popular publication The Brent Magazine has been reduced to four issues a year to coincide with new laws expected to come into force this April.

We have taken the decision to limit the production of the magazine to quarterly to ensure the authority is acting inline with new legislation which restricts the production of council newspapers to no more than four a year. The magazine will now go out seasonally (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) instead of ten times a year as it does now.

The regular January/ February issue will be out this week and the first seasonal magazine will hit doorsteps from mid April.

We are looking at how we will use social media as well as more targeted methods of communication to ensure there is still regular dialogue between the authority and its residents. It is hoped this new approach will save money and encourage faster more accessible communication with local people the effectiveness of which will be monitored and reviewed.
