Rother Citizens Panel


Rother Citizens Panel

If you like to have your say about local issues and council services, then being a volunteer on Rother Citizens Panel might be right for you.

What is Rother Citizens Panel and Who Can Join?

The Panel are local residents who volunteer to take part in consultations and customer research.  The Panel members tell the Council a bit about themselves and give permission to the Council to contact them.  The Council can send the membership questionnaires and consultation documents, call and ask questions on the telephone or ask them to come to discussion groups or workshops.  The Council gives feedback to the Panel members on what they and other people have said in consultations and customer research. 

If you would like to join Rother Citizens Panel, you must live in the Rother district in East Sussex.  You cannot be an elected member of Rother District Council.  You do not have to take part in every activity but we will assume that you wish to hear about new opportunities and about the results. 

You can join the conversation on Twitter @rdcconsult

Current Activity:

The Panel are being kept updated on the progress of the Bexhill Community Governance Review.

The members of the Panel living in Bexhill were invited to take part in the Bexhill and Dogs consultation, closing on 19 June.  The Council has to replace the Dog Control Order with a Public Space Protection Order.

The members of the Panel aged 55 and older were invited to take part in the How Active Are You research survey, closing on 31 May 2017.  This research will be used to provide evidence of how older people are and stay active in Rother and identify gaps in provision.  The results will help the Council and its partners provide what is really needed and bid for more money to help older people be more active.


The Council sends all members of the Panel an email newsletter.  Copies of old newsletters only are available below.

Please note:  links in old newsletters to websites and consultations will not work.
