Local Democracy and Engagement

    • Local democracy is more than casting a vote on election day. There are other ways to get in touch with your local council and participate in the decision making process.
Hearings and announcements

The municipality will sometimes have hearings on different matters. For instance, if you are a neighbour to or affected by, for example, a new building, the parts will be given a chance to give an answer to the hearing. There can also be public hearings on new public plans, where everyone can give their opinions during a hearing.

Announcements are slightly different. These are permits that are made public so that the public has the possibility to make a complaint.

To see more about hearings and the procedure of giving an answer to a hearing, check the municipality website (you can use the translate option in the top menu).

You can also find any ongoing hearings here.

Citizens meetings

The municipality tries to engage with the citizens to give them a chance to affect their local area. One of the ways to do this is by holding different meetings with the citizens, e.g. information meetings, vision meetings, etc.

You can find the coming meetings here.

Boards and councils

On different topics and areas, there are a set of boards and councils that function as links between the municipality, citizens, and politicians. The areas go from volunteering and seniors to disabled and more. There is also a specific integration council, which represents migrants and refugees in Vejle. The members of the council are elected every four years from citizens who stand for election. The council also has members from the city council and municipal staff.

See more about the different boards and council here.
