Thank you to all those who took part in May’s public consultations on the content of the emerging Plan. Here’s a summary of the questionnaire results:
If you would like more detail, the links below show both the numeric results of the consultation on the draft plan and the comments – both those submitted directly online as well as those completed on paper, which members of the team have typed in (with paper copies kept for verification purposes). On paper, some people gave answers that were not possible on-line, such as with ranking, so we have noted in the comments how we have treated those. In one or two cases, mention was made in a comment of an individual’s name – so these have been redacted by means of a black box for data protection. Some pdfs are large documents so you may like to think twice before printing.
The overall results ranged from largely supportive to very supportive of the proposals in the Draft Plan, as can be seen from the numeric data at the start of each question. Opportunities were given in several of the questions to add comments, and we would like to remind readers that naturally people who supported a policy frequently simply said yes, while people who disagreed with something equally naturally explained themselves, sometimes in some detail, which has been very helpful for the team in taking the plan towards its next stage.
Here are the documents presented to the Community for consultation in May 2015:
The results of May’s consultation have helped shape the Pre-Submission Plan published in mid October 2015 for six weeks of formal consultation.
