Government Consultations 


In addition to voting, we would like to encourage residents to actively participate in the political process by giving regular feedback to their elected representatives and administrations. One way you can do this is by particpating in governement consultations.


We wil lregularly alert residents to consultations which appear to be of particular local interest here on the website. In addition, there is a consultation system set up for Scottish Government policy here, and the UK Government here.  Both Scottish and UK governments are regularly looking for feeback from citizens with knowledge in particular areas, so these are interesting websites to check out.


In the meantime, below are listed a selection of consultations on local issues that are currently live.


  • Local Elections on 5 May, 2022. Regular residents over the age of 16, including non-citizens with permanent residency are eligible to participate. Make sure you are registered to vote by 18 April. Information on voter registration here.
