West Berkshire Council

Community Engagement

Listening and responding to our communities through consultations - how you can have your say

We think it's important that you have the opportunity to have your say in how we plan, prioritise and deliver services across the district. Your involvement enables us to better understand how changes impact on those in our communities, as well as how we can develop our services to better meet the needs and expectations of people in West Berkshire.

Consultations

Our pdf icon Consultation Policy [549kb] outlines our approach and commitment to consultation. We use this to help us make sure that we collect the right information.  This helps us to make our planning and decision-making fair and transparent.

Through our Consultation portal you can:

  • Search for, read about and take part in current consultations
  • Register your interest and sign up to take part in future consultations
  • Find past consultations and their results

Community Panel

A number of residents across West Berkshire are getting involved in the decision making of the council, and have agreed to share their opinions on issues of local importance.

Panel members are invited to contribute to any of our consultations. This could be through group discussions or answering surveys. As all members have agreed to take part we can rely on a higher response rate, making consulting with our residents more cost effective.

Consultations can take place on a wide variety of topics.  These can range from where we site a bus stop, up to decisions about the provision of entire council services.

We will feed back from the discussions and how this will affect what we do by publishing the results on our Consultation Portal

If you're a West Berkshire resident and are interested in taking part, please complete the online application form.

Panel membership can be a useful addition to your CV.
