During 2016, Herefordshire Association of Local Councils (HALC) has been engaged throughout the process of developing the evidence basis and has assisted in collecting the views of parish councils and has provided a response.

All parish councils were asked to identify whether they have any specific issues they would wish a community governance review to address and the views of the 68 parish councils that responded will be included in the background papers.

All ward members were consulted and the views of the 13 who responded are included in the background papers.

If agreed to, the CGR would undertake further consultation with ward members, the parishes identified as wishing to take part in the review and a range of other local stakeholders.
