Consultation takes place in many ways such as face-to-face, via the postal services, via the Messenger newsletter and by telephone. Councillors and officers believe that the most effective form of consultation is carried out face-to-face as this gives the public an opportunity to speak directly to their ward town councillor. this type of consultation also gives the council an opportunity to put on display current information about local council projects and events.
