A major process overhaul at Europe's largest Council

Birmingham City Council wanted to implement one consistent process for online consultation across the organisation. They chose to use Citizen Space for this new, standardised approach. Since then, the Council have run hundreds of consultations on the system – on everything from ‘20mph is plenty’ to a Public Art Strategy.

Other consultations on climate with Citizen Space include:

  • 10-Year Plan, Hamilton City Council, NZ
  • Homelessness strategy, Leicester City Council, UK
  • Old Town Conservation Area, City of Edinburgh Council, UK
  • Local Property Tax, Dublin City Council, ROI
  • Transforming our children's centres, Norfolk County Council, UK
  • Changing our housing allocation scheme, London Borough of Camden, UK
  • Winchester District Gypsy and Traveller DPD, Winchester City Council, UK
  • Timed Waste Collections, Southwark Council, UK
  • Sheffield City Region Devolution Survey, Sheffield City Council, UK

Citizen Space meets perfectly the part of our Consultation and Engagement Strategy requiring digital formal consultation. Our staff have taken to it easily and we have had overwhelmingly positive feedback.

Isle of Man budget: opening up a conversation with citizens

The Isle of Man Government needed to save £25 million over five years. In taking on this challenge, the government wanted to consult the public for their ideas and opinions on how to balance the budget. They decided to host an open, public conversation on spending choices – using Dialogue to run it online.

Other national and federal consultations using our tools include:

  • Review of the Implementation of the Australian Jobs Act, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, AU
  • Artificial Intelligence & Data, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, UK
  • Sale of energy drinks to children, Department of Health and Social Care, UK
  • Consultation on trade negotiations with the United States, Department for International Trade, UK
  • Ideas for Open Government Partnership Actions, Open Government Partnership New Zealand
  • Helping Small Business Go Digital, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, AU
  • Talking "Fracking": A Consultation on Unconventional Oil and Gas, Scottish Government
  • The Higher Education Big Conversation, Government of Northern Ireland

The response was overwhelming: by the deadline, there were more than 1,300 responses and over 2,300 comments – a fantastic result in terms of public engagement. The experience of Dialogue has been an extremely positive one.
