Warwickshire County Council have said if you would like to object to the bridge being opened you will need to complete one of their bar coded consultation forms which can be collected or completed at one of the 10 consultation venues
TIME TO MAKE SOME NOISE!! OBJECT, OBJECT, OBJECT!!
The consultation is currently under way with some information available from Warwickshire County Council’s online ‘Bermuda Connection’ portal.
In here you’ll find documents which have downloadable electronic copies of some information that has been released to the general public as well as information on the consultation events time table.

Consultation Venues & Dates
The consultation venues & dates are currently as listed below with the consultation material being displayed in the library in Nuneaton town centre at the end of the run of public venues.
Here (The Library) you’ll also be able to pick up a consultation form to complete although there won’t be any representatives from Warwickshire County Council on hand to answer any questions.
You will also be able to fill in an online consultation form at the library but due to some technical restrictions put in place to prevent people repeatedly completing online consultation forms. This is yet to be clarified by the County Council

On Thursday 17 September 2015, the exhibition boards used at the Local Consultation Events will be placed on display at Nuneaton Library until the end of the consultation period. Response Forms will also be available adjacent to the exhibition boards.
This will allow those people unable to attend the Local Consultation Events and/or complete and submit a response at the home to still have an opportunity to participate in the consultation.
WCC Marketing and Communications Team will be promoting the stationing of the exhibition boards at Nuneaton Library from Thursday 17 September 2015
Staff at Nuneaton Library will be on hand to monitor the exhibition boards and Response Forms and will report any suspicious incidents to the County Council.
Regardless, each Response Form will contain a Serial Number and the WCC Warwickshire Observatory Team has a “wealth of experience of managing the analysis and reporting of consultation responses, including detecting fraud and discrepancies”
In respect to this particular consultation, the County Council has already received responses where participants have provided additional pages when completing the comments section. This is welcome and they have confirmed that any additional pages will be considered to be part of the consultation response.
And now a message from Warwickshire County Council:
Please take note that this a voluntary consultation being run by the County Council and all steps have been taken to minimise the possibility of fraud, whilst ensuring that local residents are presented with opportunities to participate.
(i.e they didn’t have to do this so please stop moaning on at us not being fair!)
