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 are inviting residents and businesses to comment on the final stage of the area’s new Local Plan.

The Local Plan sets the overall strategy for development in North Lincolnshire up to 2038. It contains key strategic policies, detailing land for new jobs and the number of new homes to be built in the area.

Comments can now be made on proposed amendments to the Plan, including the route of the planned Barton-upon-Humber link road, changes to the designation of land at Barnetby Top, the provision of roadside retail areas and the provision of a cemetery extension off Falkland Way in Barton.

Visit the Local Plan website for further information and to submit your comments on the representation form.  The consultation is open until 5pm on Monday 11 July 2022.


In 2023 we will be celebrating 10 years of the Imagination Library in North Lincolnshire.

To mark this amazing milestone we are planning on having a year of reading inspired events and activities for children, young people, families and adults. We are starting to make plans and would really love to hear what the North Lincolnshire community would like to see included in the 2023 celebrations. We would be most grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes completing this survey to help us plan a fabulous Year of Reading.

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:
