It may sound obvious but we think that those who know most about how to improve a service are those that actually use it. That is why we put consultation so high in our mission to improve services.
If we have an accurate picture of the needs and wants of people in the Borough we can tailor our services to meet the needs of the community.
The Council also has to consult with local people on a number of specific things such as planning applications, plus certain plans and strategies.
Consultation and Engagement Strategy
The Council has a strategy which sets out the principles and standards which it will adhere to in terms of involving local people in the design and delivery of services.
We would like to hear your views on the DBC budget and on ways you feel the Council can make our services better or more efficient. For more information and to take part in this consultation, please visit the Budget Consultation page. The consultation will close on the 31 January 2020.
Planning Services Consultations
For information on forthcoming Planning Services consultations, including the current New Local Plan consultation which closes on midday Friday 21 February 2020, please visit their latest news and forthcoming consultations page.
There are currently no active external consultations.
