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 you what your priorities were for spending your rent money on Housing Services for 2022/23

You said

What you told us about your priorities for Housing Services was included in this presentation which was given to the Summer Tenant Conference on June 17th 2021. 

We did

We will use the feedback you gave us to formulate rent level options for 2022/23 that will enable us to deliver on your spending priorities.

Each tenant will be given the opportunity to vote on these options later this year.

Thank you to every tenant who took part in the consultation. 

We asked

We asked for your feedback on the draft Food Growing Strategy to make sure that we are going in the right direction. We wanted to know whether we identified all the communities with demand for support and whether we selected the right actions to focus on.

You said

We received over 50 comments to our online survey and 50 attendees took part in our online workshops we held in February. We are currently in the process of analysing the representations and identifying where we can improve the draft strategy.

We did

In the coming months, we will finalise the Food Growing Strategy based on your comments and identify where we require additional resources to deliver the action plan. We will report our findings and the finalised strategy back to committee later in 2021.

We asked

Climate Change is having a significant and detrimental impact to our surrounding environment and nature. We must adapt our lifestyle and habits to see the benefits such as; an improvement in health, saving money on energy and carbon saving actions, and encouraging more biodiversity in our natural environment.

We asked what challenges you face in tackling Climate Change and how we can work together to become a climate resilient Perth and Kinross.

You said

We received comments and feedback across all five phases of the engagement, as well as online sessions hosted by PKC and Climate Cafés across the region, to highlight the key areas which you feel should be prioritised and what actions and next steps we should take. The following were some of the feedback and suggestions from phase 5;

  • Promotion of Green Tourism and supporting local businesses.
  • Encourage supermarkets to reduce food packaging and to source food locally.
  • More information and advice to be made available to businesses about waste management.
  • Better use of recycling centre facilities - e.g. facility for people to have their items repaired and a shop or unit(s) to obtain refurbished or 'like new' items.

We did

Along with the action points and next steps from the series of online sessions and Climate Cafés, the results of the engagement will be presented to the Council in late summer 2021.The full analysis of the engagement process will be published in our Climate Change Action Plan Report.
