People living and working in North East Lincolnshire were asked to have their say on an historic Greater Lincolnshire Devolution Proposal.

A new Mayoral Combined County Authority, (MCCA), is being proposed by the three lead councils in the area – North East Lincolnshire Council, North Lincolnshire Council (both unitary authorities) and Lincolnshire County Council. All three have voted to accept the proposed deal.

The consultation closed on 29 January.

For any updates or queries visit Lets Talk Lincolnshire.

To find more information about the deal you can visit Greater Lincolnshire Devolution.

North East Lincolnshire Council and its delivery partner, EQUANS, are seeking feedback from concessionary fares pass holders about their bus journeys.

Data suggests that those with a concessionary fares pass have not been using buses after covid as these bus passenger numbers have dropped significantly and not recovered to pre-pandemic levels.

If you are a concessionary fares pass holder or believe you are entitled to a pass but are unlikely to use it, then we want to know what will encourage you to travel by bus.

Your feedback will be discussed with local bus operators at the Enhanced Bus Quality Partnership, and where possible improvements will be made to make you feel better about travelling on the bus.

The results from this survey will be published soon.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s support for people across the borough will remain a top focus in the next financial year.

The annual budget consultation is part of the business planning process, and we would like for you to have your say and tell us:

  • What services are the most important to you.
  • What you think the Council should protect now and in the future.
  • Share with us any ideas about how the financial pressures on services should be handled.

The results of this consultation will be published soon.

Please Note – The acronyms SEND and SENDAP refer to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Alternative Provision (AP)

Following both the launch of the new Local Area SEND Inspection framework in November 2022 and the SENDAP green Paper in March 2023, officers across education, health and care have worked with families, providers, and a range of different teams and professionals to compose the first drafts of three key strategies for SEND in North East Lincolnshire. With a significant focus on getting children with SEND and their families, the right support at the right time, we hope that these strategies identify where our priorities collectively across the borough are to further strengthen this offer.

Officers who have led on the drafting of the strategies have worked tirelessly to include a range of voices and feedback that has been gathered since September 2022. The Delivering Better Value in SEND engagement surveys, events, and workshops along with the launch of the NEL Parent Carer forum have both provided a huge amount of insight data, that has helped shape the 5 key priorities and the content of what the borough needs to focus on over the next five years to make things even better for our children and their families.

The results of this consultation will be published soon.

We received your views on serious violence in North East Lincolnshire which have directly impacted you and your family in your local community with the aim for us to work better across authorities when sharing information, collaborating and planning to prevent and reduce serious violence incidents in the future.

We received young peoples’ views on how they feel safe in public spaces, at school and travelling, to better understand where young people feel safer, what time of day they feel less safe and concerns around weapons, particularly knives. We will combine the from this survey with other crime data and that will give us a better understanding of issues young people face living in North East Lincolnshire and where we need to focus our efforts in order to keep them safe.

This consultation is now closed, the results will be published soon.

We wanted to hear about the thoughts and experiences of those families that currently use transport paid for by North East Lincolnshire Council as part of our review of Children’s Transport Services.

Survey closed 22 July 2022.

The outcome of the consultation highlighted that the main themes of what was working well, were around the child getting to school/college on time, friendly, reliable and understanding transport staff, with a good relationship being built up and being kept informed by the driver/escort on what is going on. The areas that parents/carers would like to see change included wanting the same driver, staff to be trained on simple medical needs (e.g., inhalers), more flexibility and some parents would like their child to go on the bus. The outcome of the consultation work was fed back to the service area for consideration and referenced in the cabinet report of 21 December 2022 (paragraph 1.3) on Post 16 SEND Transport.

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

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

Using the findings from this consultation, the engagement last autumn, and from other feedback, a final PNA for North East Lincolnshire will be published 1 October 2022.

Survey closed 11 September.

We asked you to tell us how you think the car park should look, about alternative sites for coaches and HGVs to park, and any improvements and additions you would like to see.

A single-storey extension to the existing car park will increase the number of spaces from 65 to 339, with bigger parking bays and electric vehicle charging points. It will also provide several other benefits to the resort:

  • Ease congestion in the main resort of Cleethorpes, particularly around the seafront area during the summer months
  • Provide a safer environment in and around Cleethorpes seafront, with fewer cars and buses driving through the centre
  • Cleaner air with fewer vehicles travelling and waiting around as visitors try to find a parking bay
  • Remove pressure from surrounding residential streets

Better lighting and CCTV will be introduced as part of the Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme, and improved, clearer signs to the car park will ensure it’s well-used by visitors.

North East Lincolnshire is home to thousands of current and ex-serving men and women and their families from across the armed forces.
  
As part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant and together with other key public and private sector organisations, we are constantly seeking ways to strengthen those existing partnerships and help the local armed forces community. 

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly, and will not be disadvantaged in accessing public services due to their military service.
 
While good procedures and initiatives have been put in place by service providers, locally and nationally, we wish to be reassured that no member of the Armed Forces Community is suffering any disadvantage in accessing public services.

North East Lincolnshire Council is seeking to increase awareness of the Covenant in key areas, while retaining, and improving, the ability of local service providers to honour the Covenant in the best way to suit local needs.

Bus Back Better 2021

The Government published its Bus Back Better, National Bus Strategy for England in March 2021. Within this document there was a requirement for local authorities within England to prepare and publish Bus Service Improvement Plans (BSIPs).

The Government are expecting BSIPs to cover bus priority infrastructure and other infrastructure, bus fares, bus service support, marketing and zero emission buses.

The assessment aims to understand what pharmacy services are available in our area, what services local people need, and how things might change in the future.

NHS England use the assessment information to make decisions on where pharmacy services are needed most and can help identify where improvements are needed.

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 End of Life fast track scheme: The application time needs to be reducedThe application time from start to finish will be reviewed as part of the implementation
The policy will only be effective if it backed up by innovative and efficient assessors & implementers.The council, NLaG, Navigo and CCG are working in close partnership (i.e. regarding housing options and dementia friendly adaptations) to ensure that innovative options are available which will streamline the whole process, and make use of pre-existing assessors/implementers who are “on board” with changing the way the processes are run to achieve better and faster results.
People living with dementia should receive sufficient support and care at home to meet their needs.It is recognised that Dementia friendly home assistance would be most helpful to those with dementia if put in place earlier in the dementia journey, and therefore there is a focus on ensuring those in this position can access the benefits of this discretionary DFG element easily
Get new property developers to include more disabled properties in their developments so less need to be adapted – this will build the stock of properties for disabled people to move to.There are planned adaptation works to a selection of properties proposed in future housing development. This will ensure highly sort after, fully adapted properties are available within the market. This will provide flexibility and ensure higher need service users have improved housing options. In addition, innovative funding is being used to adapt social housing stock in line with a pilot for this policy. This is to ensure those who are most vulnerable on the home choice links register and have a need for an adapted property will have appropriate housing options available.
