The commissioning intentions were laid out to the providers and public and as a part of the consultation five questions were asked within it. An open question was asked to allow for an opportunity to demonstrate and concern or agreement that may not have previously been captured. The consultation focused on collecting feedback on these questions. Feedback was analysed using the following methods.

1. Consultation questionnaire – the questionnaire asked for peoples comments’ on the questions within the strategy. To view the consultation questionnaire, see Appendix A.
2. Consultation events- the events asked for people’s responses to the consultation questions.

We Asked

The Council adopted legislation in 2012 which gave it the ability to control and regulate Sex Establishments. A policy was developed at that time and the Council reviewed it through this consultation.

The questionnaire will be used to inform the draft policy, and a further consultation on the draft policy will take place later in the year.

This questionnaire was focused on all types of sex establishments, and a description of each type was included in the further information section at the start of the questionnaire.

You Said

The questionnaire received over 1,400 responses which will be used to further inform the Sex Establishment Policy.

The draft policy will be available for further consultation in due course, and the full results will also be available at this time.
