The views of local people are vital to us to help us provide the best possible services.
That's why consultation is so important and why it is good to know what you think about life in East Northamptonshire and how we can make it better for you.
Without the views of local people we cannot be sure that the services we provide are the right ones or that we are delivering our services in the right way.
Consultation makes a big contribution to the Council by:
Testing options for service changes
Targeting services towards what people want and need
Improving the delivery of services
Improving the take-up of services
Tracking overall resident and user satisfaction
Testing public opinion on our key priorities and key decisions
Supporting bids for resources or partnership funding
Supporting the development and delivery of the Sustainable Communities Strategy and ENable, the local strategic partnership
The Council undertakes various consultation projects with the general public, stakeholders and service users.
