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. 

Your participation makes a difference.

In responses to the questions on how best to participate in planning policy issues and how developers should consult with communities regarding their proposals, a variety of responses were received.
