Open consultations

Last autumn we asked people to tell us about how they use community pharmacies in North East Lincolnshire. Because of the ongoing pandemic, we also wanted to know if COVID restrictions and concerns about catching COVID had changed the way people were using pharmacy services.

More than 500 people took part and helped us to understand a lot about what people use pharmacies for, how they choose the pharmacies they use, when they visit and what the experience is like for them.

We used these results, along with a wide range of other information, to write a document called the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). This is still a draft document and we would like people to comment on it before it is published.

Documents like this are used by the NHS to help decide which NHS funded services need to be provided by local community pharmacies.  The PNA will help make sure current services meet the needs of people living in the borough and what any future needs there might be.

We want to make sure the draft document makes sense to people and reflects their experiences of using pharmacies in North East Lincolnshire.

We would also like professionals who either work in pharmacies or work with patients, service users and members of the public to comment on the draft PNA.

How can I have my say?

The Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are currently seeking the views of residents on electric vehicles and to understand on possible future trends of EV in the area.

The purpose of this survey is to support Transport Officials in developing an EV strategy and to provide evidence of resident’s views on EV and future usage to support funding bids aiming to make North East Lincolnshire EV ready.

Local authorities across the country are taking part in similar work which is being driven by a number of key Government drivers including:

  • The Government announcement to ban new petrol and diesel cars from 2030
  • The Road to Zero – Department for Transport strategy on the next steps towards cleaner road transport and delivering the Government’s Industrial Strategy
  • Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution – Covering clean energy, transport, nature and innovative technologies – the Prime Minister’s blueprint for allowing the UK to forge ahead with eradicating its contribution to climate change by 2050.

To make sure North East Lincolnshire does not fall behind on the EV development, residents are asked to complete the survey to help support bids to funding bodies, showing a demand for EV facilities in the area and support in developing an EV Strategy which will be of the greatest benefit to local people.

More information about EV in North East Lincolnshire is available at

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 or Infrastructure Delivery Plan. We are currently updating these documents and will be available in the near future. 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 is intended to tackle the issues of crime, anti-social behaviour and poor housing conditions. We are 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 would 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.

Changes made to the business case

We have made some minor amendments to the selective licensing business case and have extended the consultation. If you have already submitted a response you can make new representations based on these amendments to

You can find details of these changes within the business case.

This consultation has been extended.

Why are we asking for your views

We know that some of the current services don’t fully meet the needs of our children and young people, so we want to hear from families about what is good and what needs to be better.

It’s important that no child is left out or left behind because of any difficulties with speaking, understanding, or communicating. We’re hearing from lots of different people who support children such as family hubs, nurseries and pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, hospital teams and many more. Together we want to improve services for children, so things are better both day to day and to help them reach their future goals.

Who is leading the work to improve services

To help us understand how things are now and where we can make improvements, we’ve set up a Strategic Speech, Language and Communication Need Group where many organisations are coming together to discuss these services.
We’ve also set up a number of working groups looking at particular services, such as services for children that are looked after, early years services (0-5 years), school age children (5-18 years), children with a hearing and vision impairment and children supported by Youth Justice services. These groups will tell us what works well and what needs to change.

We want to have a shared vision amongst families and people supporting children about what a good service is like, so that any changes come from what people tell us.
The Strategic Group meet every two months, so we’ll be updating you with the progress of this work after each meeting.

To take part in the consultation fill in the speech, language and communication service improvement questionnaire.

We’re currently reviewing our Children’s Transport Services and we want to hear about the thoughts and experiences of those families that currently use transport paid for by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC).

Parents and carers are legally responsible for making sure a child attends school. However, in some cases the local authority has a duty to support parents and carers with transport to school.

We have been working with parents to design this survey and it is specifically about the transport children use that is paid for by NELC. This could include going to and from school, family contact time and activities.

We would like to encourage you to complete this survey with your child present to help capture their views.

Grimsby Town centre is in the middle of significant change.

There’s been a lot of work done in Grimsby Town Centre over the last few years, including the redesign of St James Square and the new Garth Lane Bridge and surrounding development of the waterfront. 

And there’s more on the way, with plans being devised around the enhancement of Top Town Market and provision of the leisure facilities, changes to the Riverhead area coming forward, the potential purchase of Freshney Place and what that might mean, and the associated bid for funding for a transport hub in the town centre.

We regularly run surveys about the town centre, and it helps us keep a pulse on public opinion about the area. It’s a space that is used by many people across the borough and your views are used to help us improve the physical environment through funding bids and develop strategies for reducing antisocial behaviour and designing out crime.

The Council and Humberside Police are looking for people who live, work and visit Grimsby Town Centre to give us their views about how the town centre feels at the moment.

The last time we ran the survey in 2018, more than 1,200 people took part.  Your responses were used to:

  • Understand how people feel about the town centre at the time
  • Work together with others to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Improve community safety and resilience in the town centre
  • Improve the street scene and physical environment
  • Develop a vibrant offer which attracts and welcomes visitors

Since the last survey, we have experienced the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and we would like to ask the same questions again to see how your views and habits have changed and measure whether feelings towards Grimsby Town Centre are improving or not.

You can have your say on the Grimsby Town Centre Survey.

If you need to speak to someone to give your views or ask any questions, or you need a copy of the survey posting to you, you can ring the Engagement Team on (01472) 324380 or send an email to We can supply the survey in large print.

Survey closes on 7 August 2022.

Have you say on the draft design outlining improvements to a section of Great Coates Road and the A1136.
This project, which is part of the Active Travel Fund Tranche 2, will see the widening of the footpath to create a shared cycleway/footpath, an upgraded crossing point near St Michael’s Church and carriageway resurfacing.

The survey forms one of the first stages on the new scheme and is used to gauge initial feedback which could help to influence the final design.

Proposals developed will be reviewed by the council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment and Transport.

In 2020, we did a survey about Grimsby town centre to feed into the development of the Masterplan. You told us that you liked the ideas put forward for the Riverhead at that time, and that you wanted a safe space to spend time in, meet others and have new experiences in.

Particularly, you wanted soft landscaping, promotion of local businesses and local history and provision of outdoor seating. The full results of the Masterplan consultation are available to view on our past consultations page.

Somewhat delayed by the knock-on effects of the pandemic, this is the next stage of that development and we’d like to get your final thoughts on the new designs.

These have been drawn up following your input from the first round of consultation.

We’d like to re-check that the aims of the space are still the same, and then we’d like to ask you some questions about the designs.
