Welcome to WCC's Consultation Pages.

We're committed to involving people in decisions that affect them, and value their input in planning, delivering and evaluating services.The Council is keen to make it easier for you to have your say on the decisions that affect you.

Consultations provide you with an opportunity to have your say. They also help us to find out what you think and to understand your priorities and concerns.

We Did

All the information provided will be used to draw up a quotation brief which will be sent to play companies in September for them to produce a design idea for the new play area.  Once we have the designs a public consultation event will be arranged around October time so that residents have the opportunity to see the options and chose which one they would like installed.
