Public Consultation needs to make available all relevant data

Any Public Consultation should fully inform the community being consulted with.

This includes making available all of the data that underpins the consultation topic and includes:

  • Evidence base data

  • Statistics data

If the community are provided with the relevant data they can make a more informed contribution to public consultation.
