Residents asked to give their views on local services

People living in East Northamptonshire are being given the chance to have their say on the provision of services by joining a residents’ panel.

The panel is a joint venture between East Northamptonshire Council, Northamptonshire County Council and Northampton Council. It is an opportunity for local people who have volunteered to give their opinions on a range of issues affecting the local area.

Members take part in various consultations which may be county or district based. The vast majority will be online surveys and questionnaires. Anyone who does not have access to the internet can use the computers in the councils’ customer service centres or in their local library.

Leader of East Northamptonshire Council Steven North said: “The residents’ panel is a key element of our consultation strategy.”

Anyone aged 16 or over who lives in Northamptonshire can join. Visit www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/residentspanel for details or contact the corporate support manager on 01832 742203 or pandp@east-northamptonshire.gov.uk.
