Public consultation, or simply consultation, is a regulatory process by which the public's input on matters affecting them is sought. Its main goals are in improving the efficiency, transparency and public involvement in large-scale projects or laws and policies. It usually involves notification (to publicise the matter to be consulted on), consultation (a two-way flow of information and opinion exchange) as well as participation (involving interest groups in the drafting of policy or legislation).

Three forms of interaction are often mingled with public consultation programmes, complementing and overlapping each other:

  • Notification.
    It involves the communication of information on regulatory decisions to the public, and it is a key building block of the rule of law. It is a one-way process of communication in which the public plays a passive consumer role of government information. Notification does not, itself, constitute consultation, but can be a first step. In this view, prior notification allows stakeholders the time to prepare themselves for upcoming consultations.
  • Consultation.
    It involves actively seeking the opinions of interested and affected groups. It is a two-way flow of information, which may occur at any stage of regulatory development, from problem identification to evaluation of existing regulation. It may be a one-stage process or, as it is increasingly the case, a continuing dialogue. Consultation is increasingly concerned with the objective of gathering information to facilitate the drafting of higher quality regulation.
  • Participation.
    It is the active involvement of interest groups in the formulation of regulatory objectives, policies and approaches, or in the drafting of regulatory texts. Participation is usually meant to facilitate implementation and improve compliance, consensus, and political support. Governments are likely to offer stakeholders a role in regulatory development, implementation and/or enforcement in circumstances in which they wish to increase the sense of “ownership” of, or commitment to, the regulations beyond what is likely to be achieved via a purely consultative approach.
  • Retrospective planning application for stabling & fencing on AGLV land at Wanborough

    Whilst the Article 4 Direction on the AGLV land at Wanborough is welcome, it has become evident it is less than permanent, apparently being in place for only 6 months.

    As a result of the council's action, a retrospective planning application [18/P/00044] has been submitted for Change of Use for Plot F "from Agricultural to Equestrian for the use of keeping horses for pleasure. Erection of 3 units of mobile field shelters/stables, gate and fencing", rather than agricultural land where only grazing is permitted. On observing the plot, a casual passer-by would find it hard not to conclude the "mobile field shelters" are permanent stable blocks.

  • Planning application for 30 dwellings at former Elms Gardens site refused

    The refusal of 17/P/02326 highlights four key issues for larger scale developments in the Glaziers Lane.

    • The bulk of the development is at odds with the openness of the Green Belt and represents inappropriate development
    • Lack of proof that "very special circumstances" exist for development in the Green Belt
    • In opposition to the ribbon form of development in the area
    • The requirement to mitigate the impact of development that falls within the 400m-5km zone of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area
