Throughout the year we consult with residents, business owners, visitors and stakeholders on a range of topics. These consultations can be found below, followed by results and findings from selected consultations.

Current consultations

Interim Polling Districts, Places and Stations Review (2023)

More information on this review and how to respond is available on our dedicated webpage.

Community Safety Survey

The Oadby & Wigston Community Safety Partnership is made up of a range of organisations who work together to make the Borough a safer place to live, work and visit.

These organisations, including Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, Leicestershire Police, and Oadby & Wigston Borough Council, recognise that by combining resources, experience, and knowledge the Partnership can offer an enhanced approach to tackling issues and concerns with the Borough, and offer a greater level of value for money within the work it undertakes or commissions.

The Partnership is committed to listening to your views so we can improve our services and tackle the concerns that are most important to our community.

2023/24 Budget Setting

Every year the Council must set a balanced budget. We do this by assessing what changes we need to make to last year’s budget, based on our plans for the future and expected changes to our income or expenditure, and presenting a new budget for local Councillors to approve in 2023.

Before this, we are inviting residents, tenants, businesses and organisations to comment on our draft budgets. The results will be fed back to the elected Councillors who are responsible for setting the budget, for them to consider before the budget is approved.

This consultation closed on Friday 27 January.

Customer Service Experience Strategy

In spring 2023 the borough council will relocate its primary offices to Brocks Hill Country Park, Oadby. The council sees this as an ideal opportunity to re-evaluate our customer service offering and develop a new Customer Experience Strategy, which will be reviewed on an annual basis.

We are driven to find to the correct balance between encouraging and advancing our digital customer service offer while also ensuring those that are unable to contact us in this way have direct access to the support they need.

The proposal has two elements:

  • Element 1 – Establishing a well-balanced, high-quality digital, phone and face-to-face customer service offer.
  • Element 2 – Enhancing and maximising our digital customer service offer.

The consultation closed on Friday 23 December 2022.

Disposal of Land at London Road Oadby – share you views

Oadby & Wigston Borough Council has received an above market value offer from an individual wanting to purchase a strip of land which currently forms part of the Reflection Garden in London Road, Oadby.

The council must consider the offer but before doing so, feels it is imperative to gain public views on the matter to help inform the decision-making process.

The strip of land would equate to approximately 28% of the current area of the garden and would be used as an access driveway to land behind the garden.

The remaining 72% of the land would continue as the reflection garden and money raised from a sale would be ringfenced to be used to maintain and improve the garden. The offer is above the market value of the land and therefore merits consultation with the public.

The land that would be sold does not include the area on which the Reflection Park sculpture currently sits. Any seating/benches currently in the area that would be sold could be moved to a different area of the garden.

The land requested consists of a five-metre strip to the right-hand side of the Garden as indicated on the map below.

This consultation closed on Monday 12 December.
