We have adopted a Participation Strategy which explains how we will encourage local people to participate in the Council’s decision-making processes.

The Council’s public participation strategy describes how the Council will:   

  • promote awareness of the Council’s functions; 
  • promote awareness of how people can become a Councillor and what the role entails; 
  • facilitate access to information about decisions made, or to be made, by the Council; 
  • promoting arrangements by which people may make representations to the Council about decisions it has made or will make in the future;  
  • ensure that the public’s views are brought to the attention of its Overview and Scrutiny Committee; and  
  • promote awareness amongst Councillors of the benefits of using social media to communicate with local people.
