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 the Invergowrie community about:

  • the flood risk in Invergowrie
  • the findings of the study
  • other actions to raise awareness and improve community flood resilience

 

You said

Comments were received regarding:

  • the assessment of flood risk (flood maps) and their impact on property insurance
  • how options were assessed, including economic appraisal
  • issues associated with drainage systems

We did

A Question and Answer report was produced and issued to the local community. The flood study has been finalised and the findings will now be reported at the next Climate Change & Sustainability Committee (16 November 2022).

We asked

For your priorities about how the Council's Housing Service should spend your rent money during the year 2023/24.

You said

The full results can be viewed below.

We did

The results were fed back to tenants at the Tenant Summer Conference which was held on June 22nd 2022.

The results will now be considered and further consultation will be held with tenants before several options are put together for 2023/24 rent levels, based on what tenants have told us.

These options will be presented to our tenants in autumn 2022 and they will be asked to vote for their preferred rent level option for 2023/24.

 

We asked

We asked for your thoughts and preferences on the free period products initiative in Perth and Kinross; what kind of products you would like to be able to access, what kind of venues you would like to access them from, and where within these venues you would like to be able to access products.

You said

The current provision and arrangements on offer in Perth and Kinross meet preferences relatively closely, however more work needs to be done on raising awareness of the scheme and its offer to everyone. 

We did

The results were used to determine how we can improve the quality, usefulness and reach of the Free Period Products initiative in Perth and Kinross. A Statement of Intent has been published, which outlines how we will take forward the scheme in community, school and council premises settings in Perth and Kinross.
