Consultation is important: as a council, we need to know that the decisions we make take into account the views of the people of Nottinghamshire. Involving the public in the work of local government has become an integral part of the policy-making process. It's not simply about more open-government, although that too is important, it's about making policies more effective by listening to and taking on-board the views of the public and interested groups.
Search for and view our forthcoming, current and completed consultations, with links to relevant information.

We have produced a series of guides to good consultation. They cover topics including planning consultations, designing questionnaires, and analysing the results.
