The Open Council is in a constant state of flux with many new ideas and policies being developed and tested all of the time. This page provides a full list of policies that are in development, policies that are currently being tested in the City and policies that have been rejected or discontinued. Successful policies graduate from the pending status and take their place permanently in the policy menu on the left side of the site. The list below contains policy suggestions submitted by Open Council members and staff, send your policy ideas to makepolicy@opencouncil.co.uk.
