Consultations

Long Eaton Towns Fund Consultation

Long Eaton is writing a Town Investment Plan in an attempt to secure £25 million of mainly capital funding to improve the town. Part of the money will be spent on increasing footfall in the town centre and making Long Eaton an even more vibrant and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Following an initial consultation during the summer, where the Board asked what investments the community would like to see in Long Eaton, it is now seeking feedback on a number of suggested projects.

Long Eaton communities are asked to consider and provide feedback on these projects which will then be used to develop the final Town Investment Plan for submission to central government.

Take part in the consultation. Closes Monday 23 November at 9am.  More information can be found on the Town Fund website.

2020 Public Space Protection Order Consultation - Survey now Closed. 

The council currently has a Designated Public Place Order to help to deal with anti-social behaviour which is caused by alcohol consumption. The current order will expire in October 2020.

The council wants to introduce a new Order to be able to continue to tackle alcohol consumption in public spaces when the individual is behaving anti-socially. It is likely the Order would cover both Ilkeston and Long Eaton town centres as this is where the majority of incidents occur.

As part of the process to put the new Order in place, local residents and partners were asked about the council's plans via a short survey during July 2020. The survey findings will be included in a report which will be considered at the September 2020 Council Executive meeting.

EBC Tracker Survey - Survey closed.

The survey asks general questions about Erewash Borough Council and the services it provides. These questions are used on a regular (quarterly) basis to allow the council to monitor and compare its performance over time.

Tracker Surveys will again be available for completion during 2020/21 in the following months:

  • November/December 2020
  • February/March 2021

2020-21 Erewash Borough Council Budget Consultation

In common with previous financial years, Erewash Borough Council will have to make significant savings to balance its 2020-21 revenue budget because of further reductions in central government grant funding. The council continues to strive to maintain front line services whilst identifying on-going efficiency savings.

Residents were asked to complete a survey, which closed on 23 January 2020, and identify which services are most and least important to them. The survey findings will be used to help inform the priority-setting agenda for the council. 

Independent Remuneration Panel - Review of Members' Allowance Scheme

An Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP) reviews and makes recommendations to the council on the allowances and expenses available to EBC councillors.

Larklands Play Area Improvement Project Survey

Erewash Borough Council would like to improve Larklands Play Area in Ilkeston (situated off Heathfield Avenue) because the existing play equipment needs replacing as it has limited play value.

In order to improve the play equipment, EBC needs to apply for external funding and the application has a greater chance of success if the council can demonstrate it has carried out public consultation and provide evidence showing support for the proposal for a new facility.

The survey was conducted during December 2019 and is now closed.

Erewash Leisure Service Community Research 2017

During October 2017 Erewash Borough Councillors voted to start the process of finding a partner for the management of the Borough Council’s Leisure centres. The council remains committed to the provision of high quality leisure facilities for the people of Erewash, having invested heavily in its Sport and leisure Services in recent years.

Options for management of Sports and Leisure Services for the next 10-15 years are being developed to ensure further value for money is achieved.  To support this process, Erewash resident’s views were sought to help inform the development of the service specification ahead of requesting the submission of formal tenders to run their sports and leisure facilities.

An online survey was produced and available for completion between 4 December and 29 December 2017 inclusive. Hard copies of the survey were available at Ilkeston and Long Eaton Town Halls. The survey was divided into three sections:

  • Current Lifestyle/Pattern of Activity;
  • Motivations;
  • Use of Erewash Borough Council Leisure Centres.

228 replies were received and the survey findings, including qualitative comments, are contained in a Briefing Note and Appendix. A summary document is also available. 

Two addtitional surveys were carried out:

  • Existing members of Erewash Borough Council Leisure Services.
  • Clubs that use Erewash Borough Council facilities.

Derbyshire County Council

Derbyshire County Council (DCC) is committed to listening and learning from local people and provide important services to residents, visitors, employers and employees in the county and are always looking for ways to improve them.

Finding out what people think of the services DCC provide is essential because it helps the council to work out how to improve them and their commitment to consult ensures this will happen. Consultation is the process of informed communication between DCC and the users of their services prior to the council making a policy decision or determining changes to service delivery.

Details about current DCC consultations carried out in the past and those planned for the future can be found on the Have Your Say section of its website where you can read about the purpose of each consultation, find out who is being consulted and how to get involved.
