  • Local Nature Recovery Strategy consultation - closed Monday 12 February 2024: we collected your feedback to help identify locations to improve nature and provide other benefits, such as capturing carbon from the atmosphere, flood regulation and access to nature-rich spaces most needed for health and wellbeing.
  • Enforcement Policy Survey - closed Sunday 4 February: we consulted on a new enforcement policy. The policy is intended to have a much wider scope than the existing policy which applies to the council’s regulatory services.

For you, 'transport' might mean how you get to school or college; how you shop and get to work or visit family; how you travel between villages or into the city centre, or all of these things. We wanted to listen to you about every aspect of travel, from accessibility on buses to walking and wheeling to driving and parking.
