We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked for contributions and opinions on the Draft Surrey 2016-21 Tobacco Control Strategy.  We specifically asked for feedback and comments on the strategy ambition, outcome and five priority areas. 

You Said

We received 19 responses to the consultation.  This included feedback from voluntary Organisations, Borough and District council, NHS, Children’s Centre, Surrey County Council, Clinical Commissioning Group, Business and members of the public.

68% of respondents supported the strategy ambition and outcome statement, agreeing that it was realistic and achievable. 

We Did

We have taken on board the feedback received and will implement the following changes:

  • Changing of the wording of priorities to ensure they are measurable
  • Ensure priorities are clear and focussed
  • Ensure it is clear that an action plan supports the delivery of the priorities
  • Remove infographic of borough and district smoking prevalence because of low confidence levels of the data

We Asked

We asked via this website, social media, posters displayed in all 58 libraries and by contacting resident groups including our highways customer panel members:-

Are you in favour of the Council switching off street lights for part of the night where deemed safe to do so in order to reduce energy bills and reduce CO2 emissions?

You Said

Nearly half of the 850 respondents were in favour of switching off many lights and overall 76% were in favour of switching off at least some lights.

We Did

The Council's Cabinet approved the decision to implement Part Night Lighting across Surrey at its meeting on 18 October.  The full report, including the reasons for implementing this, can be found on our website

The council will be implementing part night lighting across the county between December 2016 and February 2017 depending on where you live.  The full work timetable including a list of roads subject to the part night lighting is available on our website.

 

We Asked

Whether Sunnydown School should be redesignated as Communication and Interaction Needs (CoIN).

You Said

83% of responses agreed with the proposal.  17% disagreed.  Concerns were raised about the impact on existing pupils.  However there are no plans to change the pupils currently attending the school, and these pupils fit within the CoIN need description so would be unaffected.

We Did

Statutory notices were published on 12 April for a further 4 week period during which interested parties can make representations.
