Chance to join County Council’s new forum

Hampshire County Council is looking for local people to join a new forum to help shape the delivery of essential services, and support the county to get ‘back on its feet’.


The County Council’s Executive Member for Communities, Partnerships and External Affairs, Councillor Andrew Joy, said: “Hearing regularly from the public is key to helping us improve and develop services to meet the needs of Hampshire residents. As a Local Authority, we run many public consultations throughout the year on a wide range of topics, and are now looking to complement this process with the creation of a new forum whose members will be asked for their feedback, on a regular basis, on issues that are important to local people. This, in turn, will help drive changes and improvements. We are looking for people from all walks of life to join – the only criteria are that for this initiative, you must be over 18 and live in Hampshire.”


Known as Hampshire Perspectives, forum members will be asked to give their views on a wide range of topics from social care, to climate change, and economic prosperity.


Forum members can expect to be contacted every two to four weeks, via email, and asked a small number of questions. There will also be opportunities for those taking part to provide more in-depth feedback via face to face meetings, when it is safe to do so.


Cllr Joy added: “We want taking part to be quick and easy, so our approach will be to ask a short series of questions, on a regular basis. In this way, we hope to attract as many people as possible.”

To register your interest, complete the short online questionnaire at tinyurl.com/hccresidents.

More information about the Forum is available on the County Council’s website.
