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

- Kirkdale One Stop Shop
- Lee Valley Library
- Norris Green Library
- Parklands Library and One Stop Shop

- Sefton Park Library

Other ways to have your say:
Write: Electoral Services, Liverpool City Council, Cunard Building, Water Street, Liverpool, L3 1AH,
If writing or emailing please include your name, address and postcode – this is to ensure multiple responses are not received from a single person.
The closing date is Monday 20 June.
