We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

For your views on changing some free services to charged-for services as a way to make savings, and how these changes might affect you.

You Said

We received 201 responses:

27% of respondents thought that the Council should consider introducing a charge for bulky waste collections to make savings.

36% of respondents thought that the Council should consider a charge for DIY waste to make savings.

192 responses were received about achieving savings by other means, including but not limited to, alternate weekly or fortnightly collections, reducing the free bulky waste collections allowance, limiting the number of free tips at the Household Waste Recycling Centres and increasing enforcement to generate revenue through fines.

We Did

A paper containing the consultation results will be presented to the Council’s Executive to consider whether to introduce charges.

We Asked

We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone for the Charnor Road area.


You Said

We received one response to the online consultation from outside the consultation area. This was against both the proposed 20mph speed limit and the proposed traffic calming.

A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 173 responses to this, representing a 20% response rate. Of these responses, 160 people (92%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit and 145 (84%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming.

We Did

As a result of the support for the proposal, the city mayor has approved implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force in February 2017.

We Asked

We asked for your comments and level of support for our proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for New Psychoactive Substances (NPS), which would give police additional powers to enforce restrictions, and in some cases make arrests.

88% thought more could be done to prevent people from using NPS.
