NHS North Lincolnshire and NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will be launching a new NHS Community Ophthalmology (Eye) service in September 2018, and they will soon be seeking an organisation that can provide it in our area within the available funding.

They would like to hear from people who have recently used their current ophthalmology service (or their carers) and to hear their experiences and understand what is important to them when designing the new service.

Healthcare services are important to everyone and they also welcome the views of people who may not have attended eye clinics or had treatment.

We are promoting this survey with our partners of the armed forces covenant. The other local authorities involved are:

  • Hull City Council
  • East Riding of Yorkshire Council
  • North Lincolnshire Council
  • Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council

We want your views to help identify the support veterans and their families currently receive and/or need.

The armed forces covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly and get the help they need and are entitled to.

This survey is due to close on 17th November 2017.

Please complete the survey here: http://bit.ly/NELCovenant

We’re asking about pharmacy services in North East Lincolnshire to see if they meet the needs of the local residents.

These results will be used to review our ‘pharmaceutical needs assessment’ which in turn will have a 60 day consultation in the coming months.

Pharmacies have an important role in providing quality healthcare.  When we talk about community pharmacies we mean places you would use to get a prescription or buy medicines which you can only get from a pharmacy (this could be for yourself or for someone else, and includes online pharmacies).  We don’t mean hospital pharmacies or the part of a pharmacy where you buy beauty or general products.

The survey closes on 30th October 2017. Please complete the 2 minute survey at: Bit.ly/NELpharmacies

The consultation is open from 5th September 2017 to 31st October 2017.

You can have your say by completing the Council Tax Consultation online or by completing a paper survey at Lincs Inspire libraries or the Customer Access Point.  Completed paper surveys can be handed in at these places.

We want your views on a further change to the level of support in place for low income households in North East Lincolnshire for 2018/19 and beyond.

The specific change we propose to make to the scheme would set a maximum level of support payable for all working age households, regardless of circumstances.

The scheme uses a working age household’s level of income to calculate whether a degree of support can be provided.  For pensioners there is mandatory protection in place which ensures they do not receive a cap on the amount of support they receive.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service have a three year plan that outlines what they want to achieve, how they will do it and what they need to do well to accomplish this. They also have a plan that identifies, assesses and effectively manages the risks facing the communities.

They are consulting on their plans and want to hear from you.

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.

The North East Lincolnshire Local Plan (the Plan) was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination last December. Planning Inspector Kath Ellison BA MPHIL MRTPI was appointed to undertake the examination with the public hearing sessions held between the 4th April and 5th May 2017.

As part of the examination process a number of proposed Main Modifications have been identified. A Main Modification is an amendment which is considered necessary to make the Plan sound, and is required in order to address concerns raised by either the Inspector or other representors during the examination process.

The Council has prepared and a schedule setting out the proposed Main Modifications it considers necessary in order for the Local Plan to be found sound. This document, along with an updated Sustainability Appraisal Report and Habitats Regulations Assessment have now been published for public consultation.

To look at the modifications, supporting information and to respond to the consultation go to our Local Plan Proposed Main Modifications (2017) page.
