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.
Public Space Protection Order Consultation 2020
The Council is consulting on the proposal to renew the Public Space Protection Order it made in 2017 with restrictions that are designed to ensure that people can enjoy our Town Centre and Central Park without having to encounter anti-social behaviour - an issue which we know is important to our residents. The closing date for the consultation is Monday 9th November 2020. To view the Public Space Protection Order and information relating to the consultation, visit the Public Space Protection Order page.
