Integrated Risk Management Plan 2015-18
We want to thank the many people and organisations in Suffolk, and further afield, who took the time to review our Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP), comment on the proposals contained and provide us with feedback. These views have been taken into account.
Over 2,000 questionnaires were completed online. People also chose to communicate their views in a number of other ways such as submitting hard copy questionnaires, sending us e-mails, letters, petitions, postcards and making comments on Facebook and Twitter.
We organised public meetings in Bury, Ipswich, Wrentham, Lowestoft and Sudbury and ran focus groups in the same areas; and also attended other public meetings where we were invited to speak about the proposals.
