|Update on Citizen Engagement|
Still a few weeks in which to offer suggestions
Cllr Theo Dennison, cabinet member for citizen engagement, has been tasked by the leader of the council to ‘redesign the relationship between the council and the community’.
To help achieve this Hounslow started a two part consultation. The first part asked councillors, more than 600 community organisations and residents for ideas on three main topics:
Hounslow Council has received 32 responses comprising 52 full pages of A4 with ideas on each of these topics (7 from councillors, 11 from amenity and residents associations, both individually and collectively, 7 from individual residents, 6 from other individuals and organisations and a response from the Youth Council).
The key suggestions made were:
Hounslow will analyse the responses and produce options for the next stage of the consultation which will start in early October and close in mid-November. Every response that has been received will be addressed in drafting the set of recommendations. Everyone who has been invited to participate in the first stage will be asked for their views on these recommendations prior to submitting the final recommendations through the council’s decision-making process ending up at the Borough Council in January.
The consultation is being managed by Luke Kirton in the community partnerships unit and he can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you or your organisation have not been involved in the consultation so far but would like to have a say, please contact Luke who will add you to the circulation list.
