We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We consulted on the applications by Kelham Island and Neepsend for designation of a neighbourhood area and neighbourhood forum as allowed by the Localism Act 2011.  This is the first stage in the neighbourhood planning process.

 

You Said

We received 9 comments on the consultation.  These are summarised in the report and were taken into consideration in making the designations.

We Did

On 28 February 2019, the Interim Head of Planning designated the neighbourhood area and designated the neighbourhood forum for a period of 5 years. The new forum can now commence work on developing their neighbourhood plan.

 

Detail on the designations can be read in the decision report which is available on our website.

We Asked

We asked you what you thought about the proposals for new play facilities in Colley Park

You Said

25 people responded to the online survey with the majority supporting (voting very good or good) the proposals for the play equipment, mini bike and scooter track and parkour area. Seating and bins were important for respondents in all the areas proposed.

In the Parkour area, respondents favoured the steel and concrete parkour equipment. This was supported by consultation in secondary schools where pupils felt the steel and concrete equipment would be more robust and by consultation with the parkour community who felt the concrete and steel equipment was preferable when developing a parkour area.

We Did

We have finalised the plans following feedback from the online survey, consultation with local schools and the parkour community. The improvements will be:

  • Play area for younger children (including toddler, junior, boat and basket swings, roundabout, multi-play unit and embankment slide,)
  • Mini bike and scooter track with bumps and line markings
  • Steel & Concrete Parkour Area
  • Seating and bins throughout all facilities
  • Repairs to the Multi Use Games Area
  • Resurfacing to car park
  • CCTV

The improvements are currently out to tender anticipated on site in October 2019. More information can be found in the Colley Park Play Facilities Consultation Feedback Report link

We Asked

We asked for your feedback on our draft Equality Objectives for 2019-23.  By law the Council is required to set at least one Equality Objective every 4 years and our current objectives ran until 2018.   For 2019-23 we proposed that we set 4 objectives, each with a set of 3 more specific aims.

You Said

Over 180 people took part in the consultation and our equalities monitoring shows that we engaged with a diverse group of people.  For example 18% of our respondents were from BAME groups (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic), 9% described themselves as LGB+ and 20% were carers.

There was a lot of support for the 4 areas we have chosen to focus on, with 84% of people saying that the objectives focused on either “The Right Things” or “Most of the Right Things”. 

We also received a wide range of feedback and comments and both the comments and our response are summarised in more detail in the full Consultation Report.

We Did

As a result of the consultation we have made some changes to our Equality Objectives 2019-23, including:

  • Reflecting points that were made about partnership working across all sectors, we have added a reference to cross sector working (Objective 3, Aim 1), so it reads “We will work with our partner organisations across all sectors”. 
  • Reflecting points made about the importance of being an accessible city, we have amended the wording (on Objective 3, Aim 3), so it reads “We will continue to support citywide work to ensure our city is an inclusive and accessible place to live and visit”.
  • In response to your feedback, we have changed the title of Objective 4 to “Break the cycle of inequality and improve life chances”. We have also strengthened the wording in the introduction to reinforce the fact that this objective reflects many areas of persistent inequality.

We will continue to reflect on your feedback as we deliver against our Equality Objectives and review our progress.  

Our final Equality Objectives for 2019-22 will published around April-May 2019 and will be available online.
