Let Us Know What You Think

We are always interested to hear your suggestions and feedback about the Richmondshire community that you live and work in. We can only improve things if you let us know what the problems are, so make sure you have your say.

Every year the Council undertakes consultation on all sorts of issues. These are time limited consultation activities so the 'Have Your Say' facility allows you to voice your opinions and suggestions at any time.

Viewfinder Panel

The Viewfinder Panel was disbanded in December 2011. Its purpose was to provide a representative view on the Council's consultations through the five themed Place Surveys:

The Panel consisted of approximately 500 members of the community who lived and/or worked in Richmondshire. Following the decision taken to disband the Panel, members were contacted and forwarded details of an alternative panel in North Yorkshire, the Citizens' Panel, which they could apply to be a member, should they wish.

The Citizens' Panel, operated by North Yorkshire County Council, welcomes anyone with a view on their district within North Yorkshire to join and represent their area on many consultation topics. Should you be interested in joining this panel, please visit the NYCC website where you can find further details.
