GLASWEGIANS are being asked their views on parades and public processions.
The city council today [Friday, 1 November] launched an online questionnaire for city residents, groups and businesses as part of a wider consultation on processions.
Those taking part are asked a variety of questions regarding such events – including whether they have a positive or negative impact on their local community.
The online questionnaire is open to everyone in the city and will run until December 23.
The council is also working with experts Ipsos Mori to carry out further work, including focus-groups and in-depth interviews with key stakeholders – including organisations that regularly hold public processions.
Data from every part of the consultation process will be fed back into the review of parades and processions announced by the council in September, with a report likely to go before members in the New Year.
Participants are NOT asked whether they believe parades should or should not be permitted, as this lies beyond the council’s legal powers.
The questionnaire can be accessed via the council’s online consultation hub from today.
