Leeds City Council runs a panel to hear what people in Leeds think about council services and issues affecting their local area. The council needs more people to join the panel so it better represents the city as a whole. Joining the panel is an opportunity to find out about new plans in Leeds and represent your community.
- Customer services
- The city’s cultural programme
- Libraries and heritage
- Urgent care services
- Children’s transport
- Waste and environmental services
The panel is made up of thousands of people with a balance of different people from different areas, age groups, religions and so on. However, the mix of panel members is not as representative of Leeds as it could be. For example, there are not many 18-24 year olds on the panel and some areas of the city, like Beeston and Holbeck, have fewer panel members than others.
If you join the panel then you will be asked to complete a number of surveys each year. This can be done on the web or through the post. You may also be invited to attend group discussions and workshops in person.
