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 views on the proposed design for new pedestrian crossing facilities in East Fettes Avenue

You Said

The majority of feedback indicated support for the proposed crossing. A summary of the comments raised is attached along with along with the Council’s response

We Did

The feedback will be considered in the detailed design stage

We Asked

Parents/carers about their experience of early learning and childcare – what services they use and why, how often and when.  We also asked about what they would like to see in the future.

 

 

You Said

2,209 people responded to the survey, 99% of whom were parents/carers.  As well as telling us about the services they currently use and why, respondents told us how they would prefer to use services in the future: 

  • 70% of respondents want to be able to use services all year round whilst 24% want to be able to use them in term-times only.
  • Parents/carers want services to be available from early mornings (with 35% preferring an 8am start) to early evening (with 32% preferring a 6pm finish)
  • The most popular model (favoured by 38% of respondents) is for 50 weeks per year with parents/carers able to choose hours between 8am and 6pm and with the option to purchase additional hours..

 

We Did

The responses informed the Early Years Expansion plan which was prepared in response to the Scottish Government’s blueprint for the expansion of 1140 hours. The plan was submitted to the Scottish Government and we are currently revising it in light of feedback from the Scottish Government.

We will continue to seek the views of parents and carers throughout the expansion.

We Asked

What you thought of our proposed amendments to the Guidance for Development in the Countryside and Green Belt and how we could improve it further.

You Said

Most feedback was supportive of the changes to the Guidance.  There were some suggestions for minor alterations and clarifications.

We Did

We reported the feedback and actions to the 12 October Planning Committee and made some amendments to the final version of the Guidance approved by Committee.  The Guidance is now approved and will be used to assist in assessing planning applications in the Countryside and Green Belt.  It can be viewed on the Council website.
