Have your say about council services

Would you like to give your opinion about council services and get directly involved in decision making?

Residents, students and workers in North Somerset are being invited to join the new citizens’ panel – a group of volunteers who give regular feedback on services and issues to help shape the future of the area.

The panel will be asked about a wide range of topics, from bins and roads to social care and planning, with feedback used to inform how services are run.

No knowledge of the council is needed to sign up and volunteers from across the community are welcomed, to give a true representation of what people want and need from their council.

The Citizens’ Panel does not replace formal consultations but will complement them.

It will involve regular online surveys as well the opportunity to join specific focus groups.

Anyone aged 18 or over who lives, works or studies in North Somerset can sign up online by Monday 5 October.
