Residents and stakeholders in Liverpool are being asked for their views on how the city is governed from 2023

A letter has been sent to households in the city, with all residents – aged over 18 – being urged to answer the question: “How would you like Liverpool City Council to be run?”

The letters include a secure link, which will direct the residents to an online portal.

The options are the three forms of governance that are allowed by law:

  • A Mayor who is directly elected by voters every 4 years (current system)
  • A Leader who is an elected councillor, chosen by a vote of the other elected councillors
  • One or more Committees made up of elected councillors

Voting forms and ballot boxes have also been placed in the following locations:

  • Central Library
  • Allerton Library
  • Breck Road Library
  • Childwall Library
  • Croxteth Library
  • Dovecot Library
  • Fazakerley Library
  • Garston Library and One Stop Shop
  • Kensington Library
  • Kirkdale One Stop Shop
  • Lee Valley Library
  • Norris Green Library
  • Parklands Library and One Stop Shop
  • Old Swan Library
  • Sefton Park Library
  • Toxteth Library
  • Wavertree Library
  • West Derby Library

Other ways to have your say:

If you are writing or emailing, please include your name, address and postcode – this is to ensure multiple responses are not received from a single person.

Deadline: Monday 20 June 2022.
