How to get involved

Participate in consultations that interest you.

We use ‘Modern Gov’ to produce committee meeting papers. This means you can use the free modern.gov app to automatically download meeting papers for your subscribed committees as soon as they are published. A wide range of annotation tools allow you to mark up documents as easily as if they were on paper.

The app is available on iPads, Android devices and Windows 10+ devices. Search for “modern.gov” on the App Store (for iPads), Google Play (for Android devices) or Microsoft Store (for Windows devices), and download the free app to get started.

You can also subscribe to email updates in order to receive information regarding particular issues, committee meetings or wards.
