Residents’ Panel Information


The Town Council welcomes applications for our new Residents’ Panel

We would like to hear more points of view from across our community. If you have ideas for how our town should develop, views on issues such as green spaces, community events and activities, our local economy, environment and more, please consider applying. 

What will it involve?

The panel will consist of around 50-100 Bradford on Avon residents, who will be asked to complete surveys two or three times a year.  This is the only regular commitment, and surveys will be completed online or on paper.  The project will start on a pilot basis, with the Council reviewing it in March 2022.  

How to apply?

To ensure a balanced panel is selected, we need to ask you to fill in a short application form. This can be done online click here or by calling 01225 548000.  Applications and selection are being handled by Cognisant, a business independent of the Town Council. 

As we need to ensure the panel is broadly representative of our community, it will not be possible to select everyone who applies. Anyone not selected initially will be added to a waiting list to fill vacancies as they arise.

Selected applicants will be notified in January 2022

We seek applications from across the town: all ages from 16 years, all backgrounds and from those new to the town as well as lifelong Bradfordians!

Don’t hesitate! Apply now!
