Colchester residents' panel

How the panel works

We will bring different topics along to regular face to face/virtual discussions and events and ask for your feedback through surveys and face to face conversations. This will mostly be online, although there may be some occasions when we invite panel members to take part in research carried out by telephone, or in face-to-face focus groups or one-to-one interviews. 

You can choose what you take part in, and you do not have to respond to everything that we send you. There may also be the opportunity to work in smaller groups on particular topics/areas of interest.  

The role is unpaid. 

The sorts of things we want to hear your views on may include: 

  • Budget setting 
  • City status 
  • Town centre design 
  • Local services and amenities 
  • How we travel, both now and in the future 
  • Climate change and environmental impact 
  • The pressures facing families
