Residents in North Lincolnshire can now register their interest in joining the ‘Residents’ Panel’ to have their say on living in the area.
The online panel is due to launch in early 2020 and will be made up of local people who the council will contact to get a better understanding of residents’ views on local issues.
Panel members will be sent regular surveys asking for views on a range of topics. Members will be regularly updated on how the results are being used to shape and improve local services.
Around 1,500 people will be recruited from across North Lincolnshire to join the consultative body of local people. Members will help identify priorities and shape future developments.
The panel members, who will be periodically refreshed, will be invited to take part in a rolling programme of research and consultation including regular surveys, focus groups and workshops.
To register your interest in joining go to the Residents’ Panel page.
Anybody who is aged 16 or above and lives in North Lincolnshire can apply to join the panel.
To ensure that the panel is representative of North Lincolnshire’s diverse population, acceptance onto the panel is not automatic. People will be contacted in early 2020 to let them know if they have been accepted or not. Anyone who is not accepted will be added to a reserve list.
People whose work brings them in to contact with North Lincolnshire residents’ can also help by supporting the promotion of the panel as widely as possible. Further details are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
