–         sexual orientation

–         if you consider yourself to have a disability which limits your day-to-day activity

Providing any of the above data is completely optional. Any information you do give will be used to see if there are any differences in views for different groups of people and ensure the consultation fairly represents the different demographics living in the consultation area.

In addition, Google Analytics stores information about:

–         the pages you visit

–         how long you spend on each page

–         how you got to the site

Ipsos will retain the data for one year after the end of the consultation in March 2023. After this it will be deleted.
