Lancaster City Council seeks topics for discussion

Lancaster City Council is inviting residents to submit their ideas on which local issues should be considered by its Overview and Scrutiny Committee this year.

Whether it’s a problem with a local park, a council service or an issue you feel the council should investigate and help to improve, the committee wants to hear from you.

Scrutiny is important to local democracy and exists to hold decision-makers to account and ensure that issues of concern to local residents and visitors are addressed. 

It could be a problem in a local area, a council service, or an issue which you feel the council, using its community leadership role, should take a lead in improving. 

Based on these issues, the committee can make a number of recommendations to the council or other agencies, which can help to make real improvements to the lives of residents in the district. 

All suggestions will be considered and those which would benefit from further investigation may lead to a task group being formed to focus on the issue and determine the best way forward.

If you have a particular issue that you wish to be examined in this way, please send it to the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, c/o Democratic Services, Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster, LA1 1PJ, by email  to or telephone 01524 582065.

All our meetings are open to the public and normally held at  Morecambe Town Hall.
