Consultation process

A full programme of consultation, involving over 3,600 people, was carried out prior to the development of the Community Buildings Strategy in February 2012.  Consultation on proposals for the 15 buildings remaining in the Community Buildings programme has been carried out on an on-going basis with the management groups of these buildings and local Members.  Consultation on the future of the Community Buildings Grant was carried out in 2015, with a questionnaire sent to current and past recipients of the grant as well as a range of stakeholders who could potentially be impacted by changes to the grant
