Grantham people invited to join SKDC citizens’ panel

Have your say

SKDC is offering residents another chance to join its citizens’ panel.

It has been up and running for just over a year and during that time members have given their views on a variety of topics.

These have included what they think of the council’s priorities and projects and how they would like to contact and deal with SKDC in the future.

To give as many residents as possible the chance to be part of the panel, a third of its numbers are replaced every year. Councillor Paul Carpenter, SKDC’s portfolio holder for Governance and Communications said: “I would like to thank those members of our panel who have taken the time over the last year to let us know what they think about a range of issues.

“Finding out how people use new technology to contact us and what they think of the projects we are working on has helped to inform some of the decisions that we have made over the last twelve months.

“Panel members play a crucial role in our decision making process and it is for this reason I would encourage residents to seize the opportunity to be part of our citizens’ panel.

“Around a third of places on the panel are up for grabs and it’s a great chance for you to have your say on the things your local council does, both now and in the future.”

The refreshment will be undertaken by Social and Market Strategic Research (SMSR) during June.
