Current consultations

We ensure that services meet the needs and expectations of the community by regularly consulting with individuals, organisations and businesses. We do this through the decision making process. The North Lincolnshire Community Engagement Plan is in place to help with this.

We will seek your views on a number of areas. These include:

  • Reviewing the direction of the council
  • Helping us to build active, healthy, successful and safe communities
  • Setting the council's budget and council tax
  • Taking major decisions about council policy
  • Reviewing and improving the quality of life in the area
  • Reviewing and improving service design, delivery and access
  • Receiving feedback on performance and satisfaction levels
  • Allowing people to raise issues of importance to them

Our current consultations:

We would like to find out what parents and carers think about the leisure and sports provision offered in school holidays at its facilities.

Share your views on the leisure and sports provision, specifically for eight to 12 year-olds, offered throughout North Lincolnshire at council leisure centres and the Energise programme which includes opportunities for arts and culture.

Whether you think changes need to be made to the current services or if you are happy with what is on offer, we want to hear your views.

We would like to find out how easy the services are to access, which sites you use, what activities your children take part in and if you would make any changes to the services offered.

You can have your say online by completing the survey. You have until 6 September 2017 to share your views.

North Lincolnshire Council would like to know your views on the town council where you live as part of our Community Governance Review.

Tell us your views on Barton Town Council

Due to issues with Royal Mail, North Lincolnshire Council is redistributing the community governance consultation leaflets to Barton residents.

We are also hosting a consultation event at Barton Assembly Rooms on Tuesday 27 June from 4pm to 7pm. Residents are invited to drop in to the event and ask our officers any questions they may have about the review and have their say.

 Let us know how we’ve done

To help us make improvements to our services we want to know your experiences of contacting the council.

Thinking back to the last time you contacted the council - whether it was via email, over the phone, in person or online – how satisfied were you with the service you received? Did a member of staff go out of their way to help you? Did you feel they could have done more? Now is your chance to let us know in our customer satisfaction survey.

We are committing to providing the best possible frontline council services and your feedback is invaluable in helping us to assess how we are doing and to make improvements.

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and can be filled-in online:

Have your say on the exciting plans for Barton

North Lincolnshire Council is revealing exciting plans for Barton, proposing to invest £1.2m in improving the library, local link, and health and wellbeing services.

The plans to extend Baysgarth Leisure Centre will create a one-stop shop for the people of Barton, providing advice information and support for all aspects of wellbeing, including access to library services.

Services will be more accessible and in one location for residents.  Services currently located across a number of buildings will be located together, including those at Providence House and Barton Community Wellbeing Hub at Tofts Road.

The consultation starts on Friday 18 August and ends Friday 15 September.

Take a look at the plans for Barton services and tell us what you think by completing the online survey.

Have your say on the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)

The council is proposing to introduce extended powers to deal with anti-social behaviour in our area. Working with Humberside Police and other partners, we are seeking your views on a new Public Space Protection Order.

The proposed prohibitions for the new North Lincolnshire PSPO include:

  • Failing to stop drinking or to surrender alcohol after having been required to do so by a duly authorised person, in specific areas
  • A single person cannot have more than four dogs in their sole charge
  • Dogs are excluded from enclosed children’s play areas and other designated sites such as schools
  • Dog faeces left by any dog should be removed immediately by the person in charge of or responsible for the dog
  • No loitering, lodging or begging in the street, in specific areas
  • No riding a motor bike, quad bike or mini moto in a manner deemed by an authorised person to be anti-social
  • No peddling goods, in a specific area

The law changed in 2014 to give local authorities and local police extended powers to deal with anti-social behaviour. Public Space Protection Orders include a list of prohibitions specific to each local authority area and can last up to three years. Anyone who breaches a local PSPO can be fined up to £1,000. Both the local authority and the police are responsible for enforcing the PSPO

You can have your say on the proposed PSPO until 22 September 2017.

Following a public consultation exercise support was received to create nursery provision at Oakfield Primary School. On the basis of the support for the proposal, a public notice was published and following a four week consultation period, no representations or objections were received.  

Based on information provided in our full proposals and feedback from the consultation exercise and the public notice, the Cabinet Member for Children, Learning and Families has approved the proposal to create nursery provision at Oakfield Primary School.

 In summary this means we will be:

  • Creating nursery provision with effect from January 2018.
  • The nursery provision will support the implementation of 30 hours free childcare for working parents of three year olds and four year olds
  • From 1 January 2018, 15 nursery places will be available, rising to 26 as demand increases
