Residents are being invited to have their say on the council’s emerging policy on equality and diversity.

Public consultation on the policy is underway and will run through the summer up to Saturday September 15.

Cllr Alex Sawyer, cabinet member for communities, said: “We are updating the policy to ensure it meets the latest statutory requirements, but we want to start a wider conversation about how we can all help build strong and resilient communities.

“The policy provides an essential foundation for this work and it’s an opportunity to engage with different communities and groups.

“We want to talk to them about how we can support people to play a bigger part in the life of their communities.”

Residents can have their say on the policy by completing a short questionnaire online.

Council officers will meet with representatives of community groups in September, and the council hopes to adopt the final version of the policy in October.
