Even though the feedback is now closed, you can still discuss the proposals with your local councillor.
Following the Government’s announcement on the council’s proposed grant settlement, our budget proposals were announced on 5 January 2011. The proposals were widely reported in the local and national media, and we gave the public the opportunity to feedback up to the 4 February 2011. We recognised that this was only a short opportunity for residents to feedback, and so sought to make the information readily available.
The proposals were published on the council’s website on 5 January 2011, and made available within customer service centres, libraries, and also through the call centre. Staff at customer service centres and libraries were also asked to support any individual requiring help in accessing or reading the document, as well as completing the feedback form online.
The council, working with partners in the public and private sectors, also sent information through our networks and contacts to many partner organisations. In addition, emails were to over 3500 individuals through the Hull People’s Panel.
As well as publishing the document, individual services have held meetings with those directly affected including, young people, carers and the Learning Disability Partnership, to discuss the implications. At these meetings, officers have been on hand to outline the proposals, and help individuals understand the implications for them.
