Members of the Panel receive approximately ten short electronic surveys per year. The links to these surveys are issued to your chosen e-mail address and all the information sent back to us is anonymous and confidential and all data is stored securely.

Citizens' Panel

The Erewash Citizens’ Panel has existed since 2001. Its membership is made up of 1,000 members of the public who live within Erewash to provide their views as part of Derbyshire County Council's countywide citizens' panel.

Each member of the Panel receives up to four Derbyshire County Council surveys per year, each of which takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Surveys are issued electronically or via the post. The surveys tend to cover a variety of topics linked to the services provided by Erewash Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council.

Membership of the Panel is drawn from a representative sample of Erewash, reflecting the borough's diversity of age, gender, race and background.

We also have a ‘reserve’ list of Erewash residents waiting to join the Panel when current members leave. If you would like to join this ‘reserve’ list please e-mail  

We are particularly keen to hear from people aged 40 years or younger. 

If you have any queries about the Erewash Citizens’ Panel please contact Colin Handley, Community Engagement Officer, 0115 907 2244 extension 3575.
