What is an Area Panel Meeting?

What happens at Area Panel meetings?

Area Panel meetings happen in Burngreave every six weeks where things that are important to local people are discussed and decisions are made on what needs to happen. If you want to put an item on the agenda you can speak to your Councillor or contact us at the office. If you can’t do this there is always a time at your Area Panel meeting for you to ask questions on any issue that you think is important.

Who are the Area Panel?

Your Area Panel is made up of the Councillors who you have elected and who represent you when making Council decisions about Burngreave and the City.
