Something exciting is coming…
Peepoc are in the process of researching a new website; for the moment we are calling it Community Campaigner. It will be a site designed to connect you (the general public) with your local politicians.
Should the speed limit be lowered in your local area? Is there a lack of street lightening? Is your council poor at recycling? Is it time your local park was refreshed? Is parking a nightmare in the city centre? You can use Community Campaigner to raise issues with all of your councillors and the MP without needing their contact details; Peepoc sorts that for you.
By sharing on social media you can invite your neighbours, colleagues, friends and family to get involved to support your debate and encourage the politicians to make a change. The more support you muster, the more seriously your issue will be taken.
Politicians will be more likely to respond to an issue raised on this site because of the transparency; they must be seen to address your ideas or problems thoroughly. Subtly adding pressure to them by making it visible to everyone and inviting their political colleagues and competition candidates will give your issue the best possible fighting chance at winning.
We are hosting a Resident’s Forum in Newbury, West Berkshire on Monday the 14th of December where we hope to meet some of our neighbours and ask them about their experiences of raising issues with their local representatives to help us ensure we build the best possible website. Email us at email@example.com if you are interested in attending or for more information.
Keep an eye out on our blog for more information about this idea.
