Council wants Rugbeians to be the 'Voice of Warwickshire'

RUGBEIANS are wanted to help shape the future of Warwickshire.

​Warwickshire County Council (WCC) wants more people from Rugby to join its new residents’ panel Voice of Warwickshire, to which over 500 county residents have already signed up.

The council says it wants its decisions and priorities to be informed by the views of a representative group of residents from across the county.

WCC would like more people who live in Rugby to sign up to help them deliver the new Council Plan, and focus on issues like health and wellbeing, climate change and sustainability, community safety, education, transport, economic growth, inequalities and inclusion, and more.

Coun Kam Kaur, WCC’s Economy and Place spokeswoman, said: “Our goal is to give people the chance to get more involved in big decisions that affect Warwickshire and the area where they live over the next few years.

“We want to encourage a broad and diverse range of residents to sign up and share their opinions and experiences of living in Warwickshire.

“By providing your views on key issues that impact you, your family, friends, and communities, you’ll be helping to inform Warwickshire County Council’s policymaking, based on your own experiences.”

The Council also wants more people aged under 40 from across Warwickshire’s different communities to get involved, particularly people aged 18-24.

To be eligible, people need to be 18 or over and live in Warwickshire. The council is asking people to sign up initially for 12 months.

WCC will ask Voice of Warwickshire members for their opinions around four times a year, mainly using online polls and short surveys. Those unable to participate online will be able to share their views using other methods.
