Next Steps


What will happen to the findings?

This is a process where a wide range of feedback is being gathered to help shape the decision-making process around Armada Way.

  • Designing the scheme and initial talks with stakeholders to learn lessons from the last consultation: June – September 2023
  • Consultation launch: 17 October 2023
  • End of the consultation: 28 November 2023
  • ECF analysing the data and writing the consultation report: 29 November to 19 December 2023
  • Council to consider the findings: December 2023
  • Council to publish revised design for consideration by the Growth and Infrastructure Overview and Scrutiny Committee and final decision by the Council's Cabinet: Early 2024

What will happen to the consultation findings?

The independent consultation and engagement partner, ECF, will analyse all feedback and will write a consultation report. The report will then be presented to the Council, after which there will be a period of ‘conscientious consideration’ for councillors and officers to decide how the findings will shape the scheme.  

Once a final scheme is ready, the design will be submitted to the Growth and Infrastructure Overview and Scrutiny Committee for consideration, along with the consultation report. The Council’s Cabinet will then consider the design.  

As this is being carried out under Permitted Development, it does not need to go to a Planning Committee, however it will be scrutinised by members of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Cabinet. 

That decision process will then be shared on the consultation website and emailed to all that have registered an interest.

How will people be able to read the findings?

If you have registered an email as part of the consultation process, you will be sent regular updates about the scheme. The Council will also continue to work with local groups and organisations so that they can share information with members in their networks.  The Council will also post updates on its website and across social media channels.

The final consultation report will be published online and as part of the decision-making process.

The report will be shared with everyone that has registered and will be posted on the https://letstalkarmadaway.co.uk/ website.
