Bank Closures: Call for Views: Closes 13th April 2018
The number of bank branches in Dumbarton, Vale of Leven, Helensburgh and Lomond has halved in just eight years according to the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics.
The Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee are keen to find out how branch closures have impacted communities at as local a level as possible
The Committee wants to hear from as many people as possible (both as members of a community council, as a business owner or as an individual).
For the call for views, there isn't a requirement to answer every question, only the ones that are relevant to you.

Your View Counts Police Scotland Consultation:
Information on the survey from Police Scotland
Tell us what is important to you in your community – we need your opinion to inform our policing. Having your say in the decision making process of Police Scotland is a vital tool for residents of Scotland to be able to shape the way their public services should operate - and it just takes 5 minutes. We have listened to your feedback and used it to re-design and re-launch our consultation process for policing priorities, including the questions we ask. The process has evolved with support from key partners and stakeholders. Using a digital platform allows us to reach a much wider audience than ever before ensuring that everyone can have their say. The online consultation is open all year which allows you to take part when it suits you but also gives the flexibility of being able to re-submit the consultation if your priorities change. It's a very simple process that will shape the way that policing is coordinated across Scotland and in your local community. We will keep you updated on our quarterly results. The consultation will be a completely transparent process as it's all about your priorities.
