Have your say - consultations

Want to influence what happens in your local area and have your say? There are many different ways to get involved. Find out how to take part in consultations, speak at a council or committee meeting, submit a petition or comment on a planning application.

Corporate Plan consultation

Our Corporate Plan sets out priorities for the borough's future and helps us address the challenges ahead.  As part of that work, we want to find out the issues that matter most to local residents and businesses across the borough.

Please complete our online Corporate Plan consultation to have your say. The closing date for this consultation is Friday 17 April.

Citizens' panel

Our citizens' panel is just one of the ways local people can have an impact on the way our services operate.

Surveyed up to three times a year, the panel is made up of around 1,000 households chosen to represent a cross-section of the borough's population.

The panel gives us direct access to valuable feedback from residents on specific services. This helps us ensure we provide the right services to the right standard and cost. It also helps us tailor our services to meet residents' needs.

The panel is one of the most important ways that we consult with our residents. Previously we have consulted the panel about communication and local decisions, community safety and engagement, satisfaction with the local area, and our Local Council Tax Support Scheme.

We broadcast some council meetings live on our website. See the webcasting page for more information.
