Current Consultations

Throughout the year we want the views of residents, businesses and other members of the community on a range of topics.

In these surveys we ask questions about you, please view why we ask them.

Town Centre PSPO Consultation

In 2017 the Council introduced a PSPO (Public Spaces Protection Order) that allowed the Council to deal with measures to reduce anti-social behaviour in the town centre around alcohol and persistent begging. We know that anti-social behaviour can detrimentally affect people's quality of life and we want to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy public spaces in our town centre, which are safe and welcoming. It has now been three years since these measures were introduced and we are required to review them.

View background information including a map of the PSPO Zone.

The survey takes around 6 minutes to complete.

Survey closes: Friday 7th August 2020

Weavering Heath Management Plan Consultation

Weavering Heath is located to the north of Weavering, between Bearsted Road and New Cut. It is a green space used for informal recreation, with mown areas and a trim trail. There are also areas of importance for nature, including wooded areas and areas left as longer grass. A new management plan is being prepared for Weavering Heath. The plan will set out how the site will be managed both for nature and for the people who visit and live near the site.

Have you used or visited Weaver Heath in the last 18 months? If so then we want to hear from you.

This survey will help to get people's views so that these can be considered in the new management plan. The management plan will be completed in autumn 2020.

The survey takes around 7 minutes to complete.

Survey closes: Wednesday 15th July 2020

Local Plan Review – Scoping, Themes & Issues Public Consultation (Regulation 18)

As first step in the Local Plan Review process, we've prepared a Scoping, Themes & Issues document. We'll be asking for your views on the matters which the Local Plan Review should cover. The consultation will open on Friday 19 July and close at 5pm on Monday 30 September. The Scoping Themes & Issues document provides background on the key issues we've identified and asks consultation questions.
