Citizens' panel

Group of 8 people

The council's online citizens' panel has now been running since 2017, with members undertaking surveys on a wide range of topics, from voting for your favourite Abbey Gateway carved head to council services during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Members are asked to complete surveys approximately three to four times a year. And from time to time, we also engage with members in other ways such as focus groups.

By being part of the citizens’ panel and sharing your views, you’re helping us to understand what residents think about council services, and to ensure that decisions and policy making reflect your priorities.

We are always keen to recruit new members to the panel. If you would like to join, please complete the short survey here.
