Have your say on council priorities

A new council term began in May 2017 and they are now working to develop their new council priorities. These will strengthen everything they do between now and 2022. The priorities are split between four identified themes. Once the priorities are approved, they will form part of the Council Plan. This is the document that gives residents, staff, businesses and our partners a clear understanding of our key issues. The priorities make clear exactly what sort of council they want to be, and what sort of council you need them to be. That's why they would like to hear what you have to say. They also really want to get your views on the opportunities that these present. Take part in the consultation here.

Scottish Government Consultation Hub

The Scottish Government wants to make it as easy as possible for those who wish to express their opinions on a proposed area of work to do so in ways which will inform and enhance that work.
They have a consultation hub on their website where you can view and take part in consultations as well as see consultations that have already been archived.
