How good is your place?: Closes 30th September-extended to 30th October

Community Planning brings different partner agencies together along with community representatives and organisations to plan how services will be delivered across Argyll and Bute. Your local Area Community Planning Group is developing the next version of its Action Plan and will be engaging and listening to the views of communities between now and the end of September 2019. We want to hear about the place(s) that you live and work in, using the Place Standard tool, so that we can identify what is important for your community as a priority action. Have your say by means of a short questionnaire. Last time I checked only one person had completed this from Shandon, and none from Rhu!

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.
