Get involved

Citizens panel

Watford's citizens' panel is made up of 1,200 local residents, all from different neighbourhoods, age groups and ethnic backgrounds. All panel members have been randomly selected to take part.

Each year, panel members are asked to complete questionnaires about important issues in Watford. Since it was first set up, the panel has responded to surveys on issues such as customer contact with the council, waste and recycling services, community safety and improving Watford town centre.

Does the panel make a difference?

Yes. Results of all the surveys are studied and used by the Mayor, Cabinet and the council's senior managers to help them make decisions and plan services that meet your needs.

Can I get involved?

The only criterion is that you must be a Watford Borough resident (we can check this for you) and be prepared to respond to our surveys.
