These consultations have recently finished:
Voluntary sector health check
Reigate & Banstead Borough Council and Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead (VARB) surveyed voluntary, community and faith organisations who deliver services in the borough of Reigate & Banstead. This includes all services, not just those directly responding to COVID-19.
The information collected is for internal use by the council and VARB to help them understand the impact of COVID-19 on the local sector and to respond to it. The survey was open from 12 June until 11pm, Sunday 28 June. We expect to provide a summary report of feedback from the survey in July 2020.
Returning to the Harlequin cinema
Current Government guidance states that cinemas may be able to open again soon, dependent on certain conditions being met nationally. The Harlequin is currently considering options for re-opening its cinema, the Waller Studio. To ensure customers have a safe and enjoyable experience, it will only reopen when the time is right to do so and with comprehensive precautions in place. Understanding customer views is an important part of making this decision and your views are welcome.
This survey was open from 11 June to 22 June.
The Harlequin and other colleagues in Reigate & Banstead Borough Council will be monitoring government guidance as well as listening to customers through the survey. They will use this evidence to make a decision about the cinema’s reopening. We expect to publish a summary of customer feedback on this page in July. Keep an eye out also on the Harlequin's social media channels, website and local publicity for news.
Supplementary Planning Documents Consultation
Following adoption of the Development Management Plan and changes to national policy and guidance, the Council consulted on four revised Supplementary Planning Documents to provide additional guidance to implementing Core Strategy and Development Management Plan policies:
• Affordable housing
• Barn and farm conversions
• Historic parks and gardens
• Reigate shopfront design.
The consultation documents are available in the Emerging section of our Supplementary Planning Documents page. The consultation was open from Monday 6 January until Saturday 8 February 2020.
Borough News readership
This survey asked residents for their views on our twice yearly magazine for residents, Borough News, and closed on 21 October. We reported on the results in the spring issue of the magazine.
Community Infrastructure Levy Local Fund
The council has a fund from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a fixed charge that councils collect from property developers to help fund infrastructure and improvement projects. That fund can be used to support local projects. This survey asked residents and others with an interest in the borough about the spending priorities for parts of the borough they were involved with, such as where they live or work. The survey also invited projects ideas that would benefit from CIL funding.
Nearly 400 people completed the survey, with many suggesting projects for their areas. A summary of the survey findings, such as residents' priorities is on the CIL Local Fund webpage together with information on next steps.
Reigate & Banstead 2025: our five year plan
This plan sets out our proposed priorities for the five years to 2025 and explains how we will focus our resources and deliver services to those living, working in and visiting Reigate & Banstead. We consulted residents over the summer of 2019 about our draft plan. During the eight weeks of the consultation we received over 600 survey responses containing over 1,000 comments, with further feedback given via social media, face to face conversations and email. A summary of feedback we received from the survey and our responses to the comments is on the Corporate Plan webpage.
- Summer holiday activities: We asked for feedback from parents and carers about the range of summer holiday activities we offered this summer because we would like to know if children and their parents like what we offer or if they have suggestions for improvements, new activities and so on. It was open to all parents and carers in the borough whether their children took part in activities this year or no. The survey closed on 30 September 2019.
Pest control: we surveyed of a sample of pest control customers in August to measure their overall satisfaction with the service.
Work local. Our survey to understand people's views about working locally and commuting closed in June 2019.
