Warwickshire Citizens’ Panel – Wave 33

The Observatory has just issued the 33rd Wave of the Warwickshire Citizens’ Panel. The Citizens’ Panel is made up of nearly 1,300 residents of Warwickshire whose views we have sought on a regular basis over the past ten years. This time, we are making the survey available to all residents of Warwickshire rather than just those that have signed up to be Panel members.

This wave focuses on ‘Warwickshire County Council and your local area’, ‘Crime and Community Safety’ and ‘Transport’. As always, all answers will be treated in the strictest of confidence, and will not be passed on to any third parties.

In the coming months we are going to change the way the Citizens’ Panel is managed, and this is the last time we are issuing the Panel survey in a ‘traditional’ format (i.e. primarily paper-based). Although the Panel has been extremely valuable in providing us with some of the information we need to help us make decisions, the current approach is now dated and we want to modernise the way we gather views from residents of Warwickshire. There is an opportunity at the end of the questionnaire to be involved in our new approach, and we are encouraging residents to sign up.

Please circulate the link to this survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CP33_Public) to any residents of Warwickshire that you think might be interested in participating. The more respondents we get, the more robust our results will be, and we will be in a better position to generate local results (i.e. district or Locality).

The closing date for responses is 23rd September 2011. Check back on our blog in October for results from the survey and more details on our future approach to consulting with the public.

If you have any questions about the panel, either now or in the future, please contact Renata Conduit, Corporate Consultation Officer, Warwickshire County Council on 01926 736124 or e-mail renataconduit@warwickshire.gov.uk.
