Previous Action

We have been working, with the support of South Ayrshire Council following a recommendation by the Ombudsman to the Council on 19 May 2010, to ensure that in the interest of good practice, the Council has a clear strategy to communicate and engage with the community where it is proposed to close a Council facility or centre.

We have contacted 18 local authorities and have found that only Highland Council has consulted young people in any significant way on budgetary issues that would have an impact on services to young people. The chief executive and leader of the council met with young people at its annual conference and discussed in some detail a number of options that could be implemented and still make savings.
