Citizen's Jury Question


One Gloucestershire employed a Citizens’ Jury, arranged by Citizens’ Jury CIC, to judge whether the process of the ‘Fit for the Future’ public consultation was satisfactory.  After eight days of presentations and deliberations the Citizens’ Jury raised some serious concerns about the process.  A full copy of the Citizens’ Jury Report can be accessed via REACH’s website.

We will be reporting on some of the Citizens’ Jury’s findings, but one of the most damning was that 17 out the 18 jurors concluded “The information or data in the consultation materials was inaccurate, incorrect, incomplete or insufficient”.  They concluded “This matters because it will lead to an incorrect judgement because the audience may not fully understand the issues or the potential impacts which would limit the success of the whole.”

In light of this, how do you think One Gloucestershire should respond?
