North East Lincolnshire Council

Have your say

Take part in live consultations. If you want to be kept up date with future consultations then subscribe to our mailing list.

The way we engage with you on major highways projects has changed. Many of our intentions for future projects are published in our Highways Strategy (PDF) or Infrastructure Delivery Plan (PDF). The projects published in these documents are intended to go ahead at some point in the future but will be subject to us securing grant funding for any upgrades.

We are taking comments and suggestions for projects that have not yet made it to the drawing board to give you the earliest opportunity to have your say. It is possible that your comments may not be used if a project never goes ahead or the opportunity to bid does not arise.

Any project that has grant funding approved will also go through a formal consultation process on the draft design. The process for these schemes is short, straightforward to follow and available here: Major Projects Engagement Process (PDF)

It also details how elected members are involved in the process.

You can submit your pre-bid comments on our highways major projects survey.

The Council is considering a landlord and tenant friendly Selective Licensing Scheme within parts of the East and West Marsh areas.   It’s intended to tackle the issues of crime, anti-social behaviour and poor housing conditions. We’re consulting with residents of the area, landlords and members of the public so this is an opportunity for you to influence how the scheme will be developed and carried out.  Your views will be considered and will help to shape the decisions made about the scheme.

We’d like to know about the issues you have experienced in these areas, what you think of the proposal as well as the areas suggested for Selective Licensing.

Throughout the planning process community involvement and consultation plays an important role. Whether it is during the preparation of the Local Plan, other planning policy documents or when a planning application is submitted to the Council for approval.

The Council has prepared an updated Statement of Community Involvement which sets out how the Council intends to involve our communities in the planning process which influences the way development will take place in the future. It details the stages at which we carry out formal statutory public consultation and also when informal community engagement will take place as part of the preparation of planning policy documents as well as the planning application process.

You can find out more and comment on this consultation using our ‘Consultation Portal’.

You can read the consultation draft Statement of Community Involvement (2019) (PDF) and respond using the consultation response form alternatively you can write or email us with your comments.

This consultation closes at 5 p.m. on Friday 6 March 2020.

In December 2017, the council adopted a parking strategy which sets out a revised approach to the management of parking in the area. We would like to know what you think about each of these possible changes and allow you to comment on how any changes in these areas would affect you.

These possible changes include:
  • Short stay car parks
  • Time limits in free car parks
  • Changes to Season Ticket options
  • Overnight parking
  • New seasonal charge

We’re looking to get the public opinion on these possible changes before we take any of the ideas forward. If we propose any of these ideas suggested below we will have to formally consult on these to follow the legal process before they are implemented.
