Consultations, surveys and public notices

We ensure that services meet the needs and expectations of the community by regularly engaging with you and consulting with individuals, organisations and businesses. We do this through the decision making process.

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.


We as a council are responsible for ensuring that sexual health services are provided for everybody living in North Lincolnshire. The contract for our services is due for renewal. We want to know what matters most to people when accessing our sexual health services. We will use the feedback from this survey to plan how we will provide services in the future.

Millions of pounds is being invested to transform North Lincolnshire’s cycle network, enabling thousands more residents to enjoy the health benefits of this clean, green form of travel.

To help us ensure North Lincolnshire’s cycling revolution reaches even more people, we want to hear your experiences.

Do you use the walking and cycling routes in Scunthorpe? How can we make the network safer and more accessible? What routes should be prioritised? Let us know by completing the short form below.


A new 20mph speed limit is to be proposed for a raft of streets in Burringham in a bid to further improve road safety.

The plans – with specific streets to be detailed in the coming weeks – would be the latest in a number of 20mph zones to launch across North Lincolnshire. It follows the introduction of a safety-boosting speed limit in Barton town centre.

We want to protect and enhance the landscape across the Isle of Axholme now and into the future – it is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and we are pressing ahead to ensure it is properly recognised as such. We have already submitted plans to extend the boundary of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) across the area.

We are already working to ensure an extension to the Lincolnshire Wolds and this next development will form part of a broader commitment to protecting and enhancing our natural environment for generations to come. You can find out more about our commitment to protect our environment, end our contribution to climate change and all benefit from the wealth of the natural and economic opportunities we have in North Lincolnshire protect in our A Green Future policy.

So, as we develop our proposals we want to know what you think. We’ll be asking more questions over coming month and having conversations with communities in the Isle of Axholme. Right now, the four questions in the survey are really important. Please help us by answering them. You might find it helpful to read the Natural England’s designation guidance.

Tell us what it’s like living in your community

North Lincolnshire Council has the ambition to be the #BestPlace for our residents and to achieve better outcomes for the people and place of North Lincolnshire.

One of our priorities is to ‘Enable Resilient and Flourishing Communities’, and to help us achieve this together, we want to understand what it is like to live in your community.

We have developed the ‘our community’ tool which is designed to capture your views of your community, asking a number of questions about your lived experience, against the council’s four outcomes of:

  • Safe
  • Well
  • Prosperous
  • Connected.

The information you provide will be used to determine where we can work together to make your community a better place to live.

As part of our commitment to engage with you, you can now rate your most recent experience with North Lincolnshire Council by answering one question online:
