The Dunedin People's Panel

The Dunedin People’s Panel is an email-based panel which gives you another way to be involved in consultations and planning. The Panel provides an opportunity for Dunedin people to have their say on a range of issues and to be a sounding-board for future policies and decisions.

Panel members will be sent a survey every 6-8 weeks. The surveys are easy to do, and most surveys will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Personal details of Panel members are kept private and individuals are not identified in reports of Panel results. Panel members don’t have to complete each survey, and they can pick topics that interest them to comment on.

After each survey, Panel members are emailed a high-level summary of what other Panel members said, and what will be done as a result of the feedback from the Panel. The full results from each of the surveys are available on the People’s Panel website.

People can opt-out at any stage, and if they do – they won’t receive any more surveys or updates from the People’s Panel.
