Our phase one consultation opened on 08 July 2020 and closed on 14 September 2020. We’ve been really pleased with the level of response received and would like to thank everyone who has taken part. We are considering all of the feedback received and have now published a report summarising the consultation and feedback response. We have taken the time to carefully consider all responses and have now concluded our site selection process.
We launched our phase one consultation on 08 July which was due to end on 19 August 2020. During that time we had a really good response with thousands of contributions across digital and written feedback channels.
Throughout the consultation we were listening to the community and its representatives, and seeking to undertake an inclusive and open consultation process for the relocation project. Our consultation received a breadth of interest owing to the multiple site area options that we were seeking feedback on.
We wanted to make sure that everyone who wanted to provide feedback on our phase one proposals had the opportunity to and we received a specific request to extend the consultation. Therefore we extended our phase one consultation until 14 September 2020.
We’ve been listening to your views and want to work with you, to ensure we develop plans that take your feedback into account and in a manner that supports community interests.
There were a number of ways to get involved in shaping our proposals and provide feedback during our phase one consultation. These are set out below.
All of our phase one consultation material is still available for you to view in the document library on this website.
Since our ﬁrst phase of consultation closed we have considered all of the feedback received and in November 2020 published a consultation summary report. We have now concluded our site selection process and published our Site Announcement, which can be viewed in our document library.
Now that a site has been chosen, we will be seeking further feedback on all aspects of our plans for the relocation project. This will involve undertaking two more phases of community consultation to ask for your feedback as we continue to develop our proposals.
This project website will be updated regularly as the proposals develop.
