Consultation

We want to know what you think about life in Tamworth and every year, we carry out consultation with you on issues such as litter, anti-social behaviour, local facilities, health, regeneration, housing and how your money is spent. This can be meetings, exhibitions, focus groups, questionnaire surveys and on-line forms.

Citizens Panel: This is a made up of local residents who we ask about local services. If you join, we will contact you three or four times a year with postal or online surveys to get your views. You may be invited to take part in a questionnaire, discussion groups or workshops. The results are then used to inform decisions about how we deliver our services.
