About Dialogue

Dialogue by Delib is the Town Council's new online community engagement tool. You can use it to suggest, rate, and comment on ideas you think will make what happens in the town better.  Taking this collaborative approach will help us identify and prioritise the best and most important areas to focus on so that we develop the best actionable plans.

    We want your views on how to overcome the many challenges ahead and improve our town. 

    How to take part in Dialogue

    Taking part is very simple. You first need to go to the Register link at the top of the screen and provide a username, your email address and a password.

    • Once you are registered, you can add new ideas, or comment on existing ideas.
    • Look at existing ideas with the highest rating.
    • You can also use the 'Search and Filter' tools to find specific topics.
    • If you have a completely new idea that isn't already on the site, click 'Add Idea.'
    • To make a comment, simply enter your comment in the text box and click 'Add comment'.You don't have to comment on everything - just look through the ideas and comment on the ones that matter to you and add your own ideas if you feel something is missing.
    • To rate an idea out of 5, click on the appropriate number of stars below the idea. You can click 'remove my rating' at any time to undo this.
    • Please note, we can't reply to posts or answer questions.
