Answer for Consultation on MOPAC's public access strategy (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposals saw 1,687 responses to the online survey and 900 written responses via email or letter. There were over 1,500 attendees at the public events and my Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Sophie Linden, attended over 30 public meetings or meetings with political stakeholders. 

Sophie Linden met with the Consultation Institute on 6 December and has been clear that, while we appreciate their feedback, we disagree with the sum of their findings. They discussed how future consultations can be conducted and we will take their comments onboard.
