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

North Lincolnshire Council is considering introducing a selective licensing scheme in parts of the Town and Crosby and Park wards of Scunthorpe.

The scheme would require all private landlords within the designated area to apply for a licence for each property they let out. The licence would last for five years, conditions of the licence would help address issues in the area as detailed in the business case.

We are consulting with landlords, residents, businesses and other affected parties to gather information and opinions about the proposed licensing scheme. 

You can find out more about the proposed licence in our selective licensing consultation document [PDF, 1Mb].

You can complete the consultation online now:

 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:

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a statement of the need for pharmaceutical services.

Pharmaceutical Services are provided from Pharmacies, Dispensing Appliance Contractors, Dispensing Doctors and Local Pharmaceutical Services.

This Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is part of the overall planning for health and social care in the Health and Wellbeing Board area and is an assessment of the pharmaceutical need for the North Lincolnshire area. It is a statutory document which is the responsibility of the North Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board.

PNAs are primarily used by NHS England to determine whether to approve the opening of new pharmacies in an area and may be used by Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities to inform commissioning decisions

Consultation responses will be reviewed and considered. The PNA document will then be finalised, approved by the Health and Wellbeing Board in March 2018 and published in April 2018.

Take a look at the North Lincolnshire PNA document [pdf 5Mb] and the current provision maps below:

Have your say on the PNA 

The consultation will run until Wednesday 31 January 2018. Make sure you share your views before then.

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
