This consultation has now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated, we received nearly 400 contributions and these will help inform our new policy and commitments on community engagement.

We will update the page shortly with a summary of results and notify winners of the random prize draw.

What was the consultation about?

We often ask you to take part in community consultations.

We might ask you about a new playground design, a plan for improving neighbourhood streets or how we spend our budget.

This ensures that our decisions consider your needs and priorities.

To help make sure your voice is heard, we need to know a few things about you. This includes what you would like to be asked about, and how you would like to share your thoughts.

Your feedback will help us develop our next Community Engagement Policy.

What was the competition?

A consultation about consultation? It sounds a bit odd! But having your input helps us make better, more informed decisions. And if that isn’t enough to convince you to take our quick survey, you could win one of five $100 gift vouchers. How good is that?

To be in the running, take the survey by Friday 13 September 2019.

What's most important to you?
