Consultations underway

Consultation on draft Gambling Policy 2022-2025

All Councils must publish a policy statement that outlines how they will carry out their responsibilities under the Gambling Act 2005. This policy must also be reviewed every three years and as our Council's current policy came into force in January 2019, it must be revised by January 2022. 

In approving any revised policy, the Council must conduct a period of public consultation, during which the views of the trade, responsible authorities, the public as well as other interested stakeholders should be sought. The consultation on the draft policy (PDF, 557Kb) will be open from 16 August 2021 to 8 November 2021 and so we are seeking your views on our draft policy, and any comments we receive will help to shape our approach for the next three years, so we welcome your opinion.

Have your say on housing

The Council has always listened to and worked with tenants to ensure they're receiving a good service which is tailored to meet individual needs. We are constantly looking at how to improve the ways tenants can get involved and have their say on housing.

Forward Plan 

The Forward Plan lists "key" Cabinet decisions likely to be made over the next four months. These decisions may be made by the Cabinet or, occasionally, by individual members or officers of the Council acting under delegated authority. The plan is updated and rolled forward every month. It gives information about the subject involved and shows who will make the decision and when it will be made. The plan also gives information about any consultation prior to the decision being made and advice on how you can make representations.

Planning applications

You can give your views on any planning application on which a decision has not yet been made.
