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

Following an onsite consultation in autumn 2021 at Victory Park in Bridge of Earn, we produced a concept masterplan for the site including the play facilities.  We then ran a further consultation from June to July 2022 asking for your views on the design.

You said

We received 60 responses through the consultation hub with a small number of others providing feedback through other means.

The responses were very largely positive with a number ideas for us to consider as we continue to develop the project further in discussion with the Victory Park Development Group and Bridge of Earn AFC.

Concerns raised include flooding and drainage which have been in our thoughts throughout.  Respondents also had concerns about the management of long grass areas, and about litter and dog fouling.

We did

Since the consultation finished we have held further meetings with the Victory Park Development Group and other stakeholders. Discussions are ongoing with Bridge of Earn AFC as the additional play equipment we plan to include will impact on an area they use for training off of the football pitch itself.

The concept masterplan proposes to raise the level of the ground where the play facilities are located but we have undertaken further flood investigation works very recently to see what else can be done. It is recognised that due to the flat, low-lying nature of the site and the underlying geology the Park will continue to flood after prolonged wet weather.  The masterplan will be available on this page once completed.

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.
