Group of peopleConsultation

It is vital that we consult with our local residents, businesses and visitors to help us deliver the best possible services and provide value for money.

 

There are a great number of factors that influence decisions in local government and we want to ensure that the views of our residents are one of these. Although it would not be practical to consult our residents about every single thing we do, when it comes to the bigger picture, we will ask for input to help us make those decisions that affect us all.  

 

Public Engagement Framework

The Framework outlines how we will improve our engagement and offers guidance to staff embarking on engagement projects.
