Sign up for the North Somerset Citizens' Panel (Your Voice)

Residents, students and workers in North Somerset are being urged to get involved in local decision making with the launch of a new citizens’ panel.

North Somerset Council is recruiting a group of volunteers to give regular feedback on local services and issues to help shape the future of the area.

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

The Citizens’ Panel will not replace formal consultations but will complement them and offer another way for the people of North Somerset to have their voices heard.

Panel members will be asked to join in regular online surveys. There will also be opportunities to get involved in specific focus groups.

To sign-up please fill in the form below.
