Citizens' Panel

Welcome to our Citizens' Panel. We're making it easier for people to get involved in decision-making at the Council in a number of ways, and the Citizens' Panel is one of them. 

The Citizens’ Panel is an online group of up to 2,000 residents who have agreed to give their views on consultation topics throughout the year. Panel membership is broadly representative of the borough’s population to ensure that we hear a diverse range of voices.

By listening to a variety of local views, the Council can:

  • Gather opinions to reflect the views of different communities
  • Help ensure the high standards of Council services are maintained
  • Help identify resident priorities for improving life in Kensington and Chelsea
  • Reliably inform our decision-making process
