Current County Council Consultations

Consultation on proposed change to Leicestershire Welfare Provision (LWP) from April 2015.

Government funding for direct support to vulnerable people in crisis may be withdrawn in March 2015. If the funding is withdrawn, we will not be able to provide support in the same way we have done up until now, and therefore, the council needs to be prepared to deliver a different type of support service from April 2015.
The county council is committed to support vulnerable people through early intervention and prevention using the underspend from the current fund through a different type of service.

Consultation on the proposals to introduce a concessionary charge for using Leicester Park & Ride services

Leicester City and Leicestershire County Councils jointly operate three Park & Ride services from sites at Birstall, Enderby, and Meynell’s Gorse (near Leicester Forest East). The current financial subsidy paid by the councils for Park & Ride is £600,000 annually shared equally between the two councils.
Leicestershire County Council are proposing to charge for concessionary pass holders, which will help the councils to reduce the overall subsidy for the service. The proposal is to charge £1 for a Concessionary Day Ticket and we are seeking your views on the introduction of this charge. No other concessionary fare would be available on the Park & Ride service.
Consultation period: The formal consultation on these proposals is from noon on the 6th October to the 17th November
Who can get involved: open to everyone

Consultation on proposed changes to voluntary and community sector support for children and families

During 2013 Leicestershire County Council announced that it was facing its biggest ever financial challenge. This means that we need to save £120 million by 2018/19 and we are transforming our services in order to achieve this. Our Children and Family Services department currently spends £3.25 million on buying support from the voluntary and community sector (VCS).This proposed approach is more strategic and would enable us to better measure what is working and how it is improving children and families lives, reduce duplication and bureaucracy and make a saving of at least £800,000.
To give your views, please read the consultation document and complete the feedback form below. Your views are important and will help to shape how our savings are made.
Consultation period: The formal consultation on these proposals is from 22nd September to noon on the 30th November
