Let’s Talk North East Lincolnshire…

It’s your chance to help shape the future of the area and transformation of the Council.

Following changes in Government funding, all councils are seeing large amounts cut from their budgets and North East Lincolnshire is no exception.

The Government has drastically cut the funding it gives to us and is reducing it more during the next few years.

The amount of money the Government gives us in revenue support grant will fall from £17.755m in the next financial year to £8,995m in 2019/20. In addition, we’ve had to cut £79-million from our budget since 2011.

This means we have about £1,100 less per household to spend on delivering services. and this is undoubtedly going to impact on our work on your behalf.

Each year we deliver more than 300 services to almost 160,000 people in more than 70,000 households – helping to improve life for you, your family, your local community and businesses.

We’re working more closely with public, voluntary and private sector organisations to deliver services more efficiently.

We want to work with you, with businesses and with other organisations to deliver our services differently.

We’re now a much smaller and smarter organisation, but we can’t face this challenge alone.


How else can we all do our bit?

Let’s talk about it – please complete our short questionnaire asking for your views on what’s important to you, where we spend our funding, how we help provide services and how we might do things differently. If you want more details, read our relevant Council meetings and reports on our budget for 2017/18.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns please contact the communications team on 01472 325960, email communications@nelincs.gov.uk and thank you for your contribution to the area’s future.

This survey has been launched to have your say on transport related information, advice and guidance in North East Lincolnshire.

We would like your views and experiences of transport services information, advice and guidance locally to help us look at the feasibility of a Transport One Stop Shop.

The Transport One Stop Shop work-stream is part of the overall Total Transport project which is funded by the Total Transport Grant from the Department of Transport.  The aim is to establish a single information point in respect of different agencies’ passenger transport offerings, with a view to more effective signposting and publicity. A Transport One Stop Shop to deal with user needs and requests for services locally within North East Lincolnshire.

Please visit our dedicated webpage to learn more about the Total Transport project https://www.nelincs.gov.uk/totaltransport.

The Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) partnership is opening up the STP for comment with future engagement planned. Here is an update from the Humber Coast and Vale (STP) partnership. Visit the website for more details.

The Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Plan is a set of proposals that suggests how we can work together to transform the way that health and care is planned and delivered for local people. Early in 2017 we will launch a programme of engagement that will give everyone the opportunity to tell us what you think about our proposals. Our website http://humbercoastandvale.org.uk is now live and soon you will be able to use it to find our calendar of events, questionnaires and other materials that will help you to send us your feedback. Visit the website now to find out more about our vision for health and social care in Humber Coast and Vale.

Our community in North East Lincolnshire has a range of aspirations and should be supported wherever possible to achieve them. We recognise that young people are drawn to large cities across the UK and work experience globally has a large appeal. We also recognise the ‘brain drain’ that this can lead to and the potential impact that this can have on local employers.

Our approach to learning and skills needs to be based within this context. We want to work closely with schools, colleges and local employers to raise awareness of local opportunities that people may want to access.  We need to be clear on what qualifications and skills are valued and needed locally. This approach requires new relationships and new ways of working.

The council is working in partnership with organisations and individuals who are playing a key role in the education and upskilling of our community.  We need the learning and training opportunities to be beneficial to the learner, the partnership organisations and employers in North East Lincolnshire.

We are currently looking for comments and input from organisations and individuals to help us shape our future skills action plan for North East Lincolnshire.

The survey will be available until 9 July 2017 and can be accessed via the following link:

Draft Skills Action Plan 9-6-17

Skills Action Plan Summary

North East Lincolnshire Economic Strategy

Like other local authorities across the UK, we are having to carefully manage what we spend.   About two thirds of the money we spend is used to help older people, vulnerable adults, children and family services. We have to provide all of our other services with what is left.

We want to find out what is important to you and getting your ideas about how we can improve our environment.  Across North East Lincolnshire, most of our household waste (69%) currently ends up in a green bin but residents that are using the recycling boxes are generally not filling their green bin.

The Council has considered the current arrangement for the green bin waste collections but this cannot continue in the same way. Before we make any decisions about how we change the service we would like your views and opinions about how you think changes might affect you and your household.

This consultation will close on Monday 10 July at 12 noon

To have your say please complete the 10 minute SURVEY.

We would like to find out about people’s level of awareness of North East Lincolnshire’s Local Offer – not the individual services that make up the offer.

The Local Offer is the place on the council website that provides and directs you to information that will support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

This consultation will close on Thursday 13 July.
