Solent Devolution Consultation

Start of consultation: 22 Jul 2016
End of consultation: 18 Sep 2016

We would really value you spending a few minutes to provide some feedback on our proposals for a Solent Mayoral Combined Authority. The Isle of Wight Council, Portsmouth City Council, Southampton City Council and Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) are in the process of negotiating a devolution deal with government. This consultation will help shape the submission we make to central government in September 2016. We need your views.

We are consulting on the ‘draft Scheme’ which is a legal document that sets out the plans which will be sent to central government. We recommend that you read about the proposals at before you complete this questionnaire.

Isle of Wight Rights of Way Improvement Plan Consultation

Start of consultation: 20 Jun 2016
End of consultation: 16 Sep 2016

Under the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000, all local highway authorities are required to adopt and publish a Rights of Way Improvement Plan (RoWIP), the key function of which is to set out how improvements made by the highway authority to the public rights of way network will provide a better experience for users. The Isle of Wight Council published its first RoWIP in 2006, and is required under the CROW Act to review the plan at intervals of not more than ten years. We would like to hear your views around the extent to which the existing RoWIP still meets the needs of its audience.
