Watch The Big Conversation's Play in a Day with Yew tree Theatre and young people from Castleford
We want to make the Wakefield District an even better place to live, work and grow. We’re doing that by having a Big Conversation, so we can listen to everyone and work together.
The Big Conversation is about all of us being a part of shaping the future of Wakefield.
Your views will inform several programmes of work including the Wakefield District’s new Economic Wellbeing Strategy and the Council’s Corporate plan.
Our trained Conversationalists have positive conversations with people across the district to find out what matters to them. We then look at the information given to us and identify the things that really matter to you and your neighbours. This will shape our work in the future.
