Equality Impact Assessment (EIA)

Equality legislation requires the Council to publish equality information and objectives. Equality Impact Assessment is a way of thoroughly assessing, and consulting on, the effects that a function, policy or procedure is likely to have on groups of people within our community.

The Council has developed Equality Impact Assessments on our website pages that link to evidence about a service including user satisfaction, policy documents and performance information. The impact assessment are live pages that inform our continuous development. 

The Council will carry out an annual EIA for all services as part of the Service Planning process.  All new policies and strategies will also be assessed along with all Executive Committee decisions in line with our Comprehensive Equality Scheme.

EIAs for the following service areas will be published when available:

  • Building Control
  • Customer Services
  • Economic Growth
  • Environmental Services
  • Financial Services
  • Governance and Audit
  • Housing Services
  • Human Resources
  • Planning
  • Policy & Communications
  • Property & Parking Services
  • Regulatory Services
  • Revenues and Benefits
