Listening to the public

National public consultations are carried out in accordance with the Cabinet Office Code of Practice on Consultation. This helps guide us on how to consult openly, inclusively and responsively. Consultation periods normally last at least 12 weeks, although there are circumstances in which shorter consultations will be unavoidable (for instance, where timescales are set out in law)...

A draft (Partial) Regulatory Impact Assessment will be included as part of most national public consultations and where proposals may create burdens for business.

Many of the principles in this Code apply to local public consultations on particular road projects, including route management strategies, though application of the Code will be proportionate to the type of consultation taking place. Many of these local consultations are listed here alongside national consultations. However, if the consultation you are looking for is not listed here, please visit our Road Projects page.

View Route Management Strategy consultations.

If the consultation you are looking for is not on the website or if you think that the Code of Practice has not been followed in other ways, please contact:

Final Regulatory Impact Assessments

A Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) is a tool which informs policy decisions. It is an assessment of the impact of policy options in terms of the costs, benefits and risks of a proposal.

It is government policy that all departments and agencies where they exercise statutory powers and make rules with a general effect on others should produce RIAs.

A final RIA is published alongside all legislation that imposes costs on, or realises benefits to, business, charities and the voluntary sector.

More information about RIAs can be obtained from the Cabinet Office web-site in the section called Regulatory Impact Assessment.

Below is a list of links to the final Regulatory Impact Assessments that have been laid in the Houses of Parliament Libraries.
