  • There are no pre-consultation projects at present

*With some of our projects, we carry out a Pre-consultation stage where we seek the views of a limited number of people before we get to the Consultation stage. This helps us get an initial insight into people’s views.

We want you to be satisfied with the services we provide and we want to hear your views and opinions about changes or new plans so that we can ensure they meet your needs.

Powys is a very rural county and providing services which meet the needs of all our residents is a tricky business.  Consulting with you on our plans is vital if we are to get it right. Hearing your views and listening to your ideas and concerns can help us improve our services.

How do we consult?

We use postal questionnaires, focus groups, informal meetings, exhibitions, conferences, telephone surveys and face to face interviews to capture your views.

You also help us improve services when you contact us with comments, complaints or service requests.

We are keen that you feel able to give us your views and that we consult with you on a regular basis.  We want you to have a say!  

We also have an established Citizens Panel.  This is a group of approximately 1000 volunteers, drawn from all walks of life from all over Powys. We regularly call on our Panel Members for their views on a whole range of services.

Find out more about the Citizens Panel, or if you are interested, become a member.



Every year we ask 1,000 residents how they rate us. We ask  how satisfied you are with our key services and how we can improve them if you're dissatisfied.

We ask about a wide variety of services, from schools to street cleansing and and from refuse to rights of way.

We ask you about how you contact the council and how often.

All of your feedback helps our managers to plan ahead, consider your needs and provide better services for you.
