Select Committee on Public Administration Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Memorandum by Lincolnshire County Council

To further develop community consultation the council has formed a partnership with all Lincolnshire District Councils and Lincolnshire Police to establish a joint, countywide citizens' panel. Working jointly from the start enables us to maximise opportunities for co-ordination and achieve best value through joint purchasing of the support to operate the panel.

  The partners believe this provides a model for co-ordinating multi-agency consultation.

  The panel was established in November this year. It has been badged "Viewpoint". It consists of 3500 residents, 500 per district. The first questionnaire survey is also joint, enabling coverage of the full panel at shared costs.

  I enclose a copy of the consultation brief sent out with the original tender documentation. You may share this information with others.

  If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to let me know.
