NPT Citizens’ Panel
NPT Citizens’ Panel has been set up to represent the diverse population of Neath Port Talbot and to hear the views of as many different people as possible to ensure we represent the local demographics of the county borough.
The panel is currently made up of 450 local residents, from across Neath Port Talbot County Borough who have agreed to give their views on a number of topics. Panel members share their views by completing online surveys.
The Panel is open to residents of Neath Port Talbot aged 16 and over. The purpose is to:
- Make it easier for Neath Port Talbot Residents to give feedback to the council on its work and to contribute to policy and service development and change.
- Actively involve residents in decision making at a very early stage, so they help shape proposals before these go out to wider public consultation
- Develop a mechanism for obtaining quick and reliable feedback from residents about proposals and new ideas
- Help the council to understand residents’ perspectives to help inform decisions
The Citizens’ Panel does not replace formal consultations, but will complement them and provide an opportunity for the people of Neath Port Talbot to influence some of the decisions that affect them.
