We would like to hear from you

This formal consultation process follows the recently completed ‘listening and engagement’ exercise which has helped to inform the proposed changes that are now being put out to public consultation. Even if you participated in the ‘listening and engagement’ phase, it is vital that you give us your views as part of the formal consultation period. We want as many local people as possible to have their say, so please access the proposals and the response forms below.

This is a dedicated line for the consultation.
