We appreciate the need to engage and consult with our residents in new ways. Social media has provided a much broader range of opportunities for people to get involved in local democracy, and the Ask Warwickshire project is designed to help raise awareness of the many ways that residents can now share their views on subjects affecting the county.
Ask Warwickshire is not about discarding traditional approaches to consultation, such as paper-based surveys. Our aim is to complement these methods with new and increasingly interactive approaches. We want to provide the opportunity for residents to share their views on a range of topics in a more dynamic, informal way.
We want to generate more timely conversations on topics that are of interest, so that we can develop a better understanding of our communities’ views and perceptions. Ultimately, we want to provide the opportunity for all residents to get involved using the methods they prefer to use, rather than the methods they may have been limited to in the past.
Please visit the site and let us know your views on the conversations going on across Warwickshire.
