Youth Board members attend the monthly meetings and give opinions about a selection of topics on the agenda. They can attend subcommittees that make decisions around planning, regeneration and communities, investment and other areas. Depending on legal implications, we act as participants or observers, which allows us to gain a full picture of the breadth of work happening at LLDC’s board level and comment in real time. We get to give input on a variety of topics, like housing, architecture, sports, culture, and arts – and much more. Most importantly, we are given a chance to scrutinise and critique.
