East Ayrshire Residents’ Panel is a representative group of approximately 1,000 local residents which was established to allow community planning partners to gain an increased understanding of residents’ views and to increase community consultation in relation to the planning and development of services.
Panel members are invited to participate on formal consultations, by mail or email, or to act as ‘focus groups’ or to attend particular consultation events, all of which can be initiated by any of our Community Planning Partners. This has previously included involvement in participatory budgeting, Local Development Plan consultation and the Community Plan Review which informed development of our current Community Plan and related Delivery Plans.
The Resident’s Panel is formally ‘refreshed’ every few years. If you are an East Ayrshire resident who would like to be involved in future Panel consultations, then please contact us.
