What happens next

178 people attended the workshops run throughout June and July providing us with valuable information about key issues affecting their local areas. We'd like to thank those that took the time to attend. 

We will be analysing the outcomes of the workshops over the summer, and we will be publishing this analysis in the autumn. At that stage we will seek to engage with communities again to check that what we have recorded is correct, and to start to discuss options to address the issues that have been raised.
