We have launched our latest residents’ survey to get your views on the Council and your local area.

Your views matter

Cllr Victor Broad, Leader of the Council, is urging everyone who lives in the borough to take part: “What you tell us about the Council, our services and where you live through this survey is really important. It helps us to understand which services are most important to you, and where we can improve, so please do have your say.

“The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and you can even fill it in on the go on your mobile or tablet. The results will help inform our upcoming priorities, plans and spending.”

Informing priorities

Cllr Broad added: “Even if you’ve completed our residents survey in the past, please take part this time to help us understand how we are doing and whether things have changed since last time.”

Previous surveys have informed our Five Year Plan, which sets out the Council’s priorities and objectives to 2020, and where we will be prioritising spending as a result.

The survey is being conducted on the Council's behalf by independent market research company M·E·L Research. The survey has been circulated to 5,500 residents who have contacted the Council previously but we want to give everyone the chance to have their say.
