Prior to the first phase of consultation details of the review were published in the Spring edition of the Link Magazine and all Parish Chairman were invited to meetings to discuss the upcoming review and what it meant for their Parishes. Before both consultation periods all the Parish Clerks, County & District Councillors and MP's along with over 130 community groups across the district were contacted notifying them that the consultation periods were beginning. 

Throughout the review we have published press releases and continued to make use of social media with the aim of reaching as many residents as possible. 

Residents and Councils were asked to submit their responses via an online survey, by email and by post.
