We have a number of consultations taking place in February that South Gloucestershire residents are encouraged to have their say on, including:

  • Library users survey 2015. South Gloucestershire libraries are asking their users for their views about the service in an online survey. The feedback from customers will be used to plan developments in the service and identify areas for improvement. Ends 23 February.
  • Streetcare customer satisfaction survey. Our Streetcare department’s two yearly survey on customer satisfaction to help shape the future of the service. Your views will help us to plan for and continuously improve our services to our customers. Ends 28 February.
  • Joint Strategic Planning Strategy: Call for Sites – Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment. The Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment is one of a number of studies which will support the development of the Joint Strategic Planning Strategy by the four West of England local authorities. Ends 6 March.
  • Proposed changes to Welfare Grants scheme. We have been running a local Welfare Grants scheme since 2013, which is funded by government. The scheme provides assistance to vulnerable people to help meet their urgent subsistence or financial needs. This funding will not continue from April 2015, and we are considering three options for the future of the scheme. Ends 21 March.
  • There’s also still time to comment on the proposed changes to Sort It centres in South Gloucestershire. We provide four Sort It centres at Mangotsfield, Stoke Gifford, Thornbury and Yate for the collection of household waste which are operated by SITA. We are considering four options to vary the service provided at the centres to help us achieve our future savings targets. Ends 14 February.

Other current consultations include admission arrangements for schools, local traffic schemes and proposed changes to bus services.

You can have your say on current issues by filling in questionnaires or commenting on proposed plans.

Throughout the year we seek the views of residents, business owners and stakeholders on a range of consultation topics. Consultations give local people the opportunity to have a greater say in what happens in their area and to be more active in decision making. Telling us your views will help to inform any decision-making that takes place and ensure that we are delivering services that you have helped to shape.
