In 2014 the community engagement team spent 6 weeks talking to residents in their local markets, libraries and sports centres to find out how residents wanted to get involved in their local area. We also encouraged members of the Area Forums to take part by inviting them via letter or email.
Residents informed us that they were most likely to attend a meeting either focused on a local issue that mattered to them, or to a meeting with a chance to meet the Leader and other senior figures in the council. Some residents also told us that evening meetings were not always suitable for their lifestyles, but they did want a convenient way to get involved.
