In 2016, Inverclyde CPP undertook an extensive 6-month community engagement with stakeholders across Inverclyde via a survey and a series of community events.
Using the Place Standard tool, Inverclyde CPP’s ‘Our Place Our Future’ survey aimed to capture people’s views on a wide range of themes affecting the local community including housing, safety, public transport, facilities and local amenities and play and recreation. An adapted survey was also developed to consult with children and young people touching, with questions tailored to suit a young audience.
This was the largest consultation ever undertaken by Inverclyde CPP, with almost 2% of residents aged 16 and over completing the survey. This was the highest rate of engagement Inverclyde CPP had ever achieved, with the findings from the consultation directly informing the key priorities that were included in the LOIP.
