ConsultationConsultation meeting

Consultation helps us to shape our policies and services and keep us in tune with what our customers want. 

Allerdale Borough Council is committed to consulting with the public ensuring we engage with a cross-section of the community to ensure that all of our residents are given the chance to comment and feedback on issues which affect them. We will do this through various mechanisms such as:

  • public meetings
  • paper based surveys
  • telephone surveys
  • focus groups and workshops
  • on-line surveys
  • neighbourhood forums

The Council has a consultation database which is updated regularly with all consultation the Council has been involved in and also has details of planned consultation. You can also subscribe to the consultations feed RSS Feeds

Survey of residents

We hold regular major surveys of our residents. These are carried out by independent organisations on our behalf. Residents are selected randomly and according to the population in each ward. The results are then weighted to fully reflect the local population.

Allerdale residents are asked for their views on public services, democracy, voluntary work, crime and disorder which will provide a snapshot of public opinion and satisfaction with life in the borough.

Results from the surveys can be found below. We only hold full reports for 2008, 2014 and 2016, with headline figures for 2012.
