Current consultations

We ensure that services meet the needs and expectations of the community by regularly consulting with individuals, organisations and businesses. We do this through the decision making process. The North Lincolnshire Community Engagement Plan is in place to help with this.

We will seek your views on a number of areas. These include:

  • Reviewing the direction of the council
  • Helping us to build active, healthy, successful and safe communities
  • Setting the council's budget and council tax
  • Taking major decisions about council policy
  • Reviewing and improving the quality of life in the area
  • Reviewing and improving service design, delivery and access
  • Receiving feedback on performance and satisfaction levels
  • Allowing people to raise issues of importance to them

Our current consultations:

Barrow-upon-Humber, led by Barrow-upon-Humber Parish Council, is making progress with preparing its Neighbourhood Plan that sets out how local people want to see their community developed over the next 10 to 15 years.

The Neighbourhood Plan could include setting out where new homes are built, which areas of open space are protected or enhanced, or what local facilities are needed in the future.

The first part of the process is to decide exactly what area the Neighbourhood Plan should cover. The Parish Council has submitted an application to North Lincolnshire Council to have their specified area officially designated as a ‘Neighbourhood Area’.

Take a look at Barrow-upon-Humber's Neighbourhood Area application [PDF 2Mb].

Have your on say on the proposed Neighbourhood Area for Barrow. The consultation will run from Friday 22 December 2017 to Friday 9 February 2018.

To help us make improvements to our services we want to know your experiences of contacting the council.

Thinking back to the last time you contacted the council - whether it was via email, over the phone, in person or online – how satisfied were you with the service you received? Did a member of staff go out of their way to help you? Did you feel they could have done more? Now is your chance to let us know in our customer satisfaction survey.

We are committing to providing the best possible frontline council services and your feedback is invaluable in helping us to assess how we are doing and to make improvements.

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and can be filled-in online:

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a statement of the need for pharmaceutical services.

Pharmaceutical Services are provided from Pharmacies, Dispensing Appliance Contractors, Dispensing Doctors and Local Pharmaceutical Services.

This Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is part of the overall planning for health and social care in the Health and Wellbeing Board area and is an assessment of the pharmaceutical need for the North Lincolnshire area. It is a statutory document which is the responsibility of the North Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board.

PNAs are primarily used by NHS England to determine whether to approve the opening of new pharmacies in an area and may be used by Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities to inform commissioning decisions

Consultation responses will be reviewed and considered. The PNA document will then be finalised, approved by the Health and Wellbeing Board in March 2018 and published in April 2018.

Take a look at the North Lincolnshire PNA document [pdf 5Mb] and the current provision maps below:
