How to extend the consultation period

Natalie Williams -

You may find that you need to extend the consultation period on a Citizen Space consultation that is already published, or even to re-open a consultation that has closed.

This is straightforward to do and you don't need to retract the consultation to make this change:

  1. From the Consultation Dashboard, go into 1. Edit Consultation Details.
  2. Move the closing date to your new chosen date .
  3. Select Save changes at the bottom of the page.

It may also be a good idea to add some additional text to the consultation overview page clarifying that the closing date has moved forward and explaining the reasons why.
