The council carries out consultation to shape our policies and services, and ensure they meet the needs of our residents. Everyone should have the opportunity to have their say on issues that affect them.

Consultations will be listed here when available.

Council Tax Support Scheme Consultation

We are welcoming comments from residents in the Forest of Dean District on the Council’s proposal for amending its current Council Tax Support Scheme, to take effect from 1 April 2023, which we think will help support those who most need it.

The consultation is open to comments until Sunday 18 September 2022.
Read further details and comment here.

Help us create our Local Plan

The Issues and Options consultation took place in 2019 and the Preferred Option in 2020. We have taken into account all the comments made at these previous stages and developed a Second Preferred Option. We would like to know what you think about the latest proposals for managing development in the Forest of Dean District up until 2041.

The consultation is open to comments Monday 26 September.
