Introduction

What else is happening as part of the consultation process?

This is a 12 week public consultation. As this is a relatively limited consultation in terms of its scope, the Council has not planned any consultation meetings but would be happy to arrange a meeting to discuss any of the issues raised if this would be helpful. Once the results of the consultation have been considered, the updated guidelines will be published and used by all courts.
