How have you engaged on the STP?
We have been talking to local people about these issues for several years. Last year, we published an ‘issues paper’ setting out all the challenges and invited people to respond; a large scale meeting took place in each borough and we received substantial feedback. We have written to over 1600 local organisations at every stage of the STP process, setting out our latest thinking. And we have plans for further local events over the next few months, where people will have a further opportunity to discuss and influence our plans
