|Council Invites Residents To Share Their Opinions|
Join the Wandsworth Matters panel and help shape services
The council has launched its new Wandsworth Matters online residents’ panel to make it easier for local people to comment on existing services and help shape new ones.
Wandsworth Matters is a chance to give your opinion on issues in the area where you live, have your say on council services and get your ideas heard by local decision makers.
Anyone who signs up will be invited to complete surveys, take part in online group discussions, complete quick snap surveys and post to bulletin boards. Survey results and feedback will be reported to senior councillors and officers to feed into the decision-making process.
Leader of the council, Ravi Govindia, said:
The panel is open to Wandsworth residents and businesses and to people studying or working in the borough. The more people that sign up, the wider the range of views that will be heard and the more representative it will be of the borough’s population as a whole.
Residents can communicate with the council via Wandsworth Matters in addition to the existing methods, which people are still free to use.
The council has made it easier to respond to council consultations by bringing them together in one online ‘portal’. Visit www.wandsworth.gov.uk/consult to find a range of consultations including one on Primary Schools Admissions Criteria. Visitors to the site can also view previous consultations.
