An eight week public consultation starts today on Reigate & Banstead Borough Council’s new draft five year plan: Reigate & Banstead 2025.
Residents, customers, local businesses and regular visitors to the borough are being asked to complete a survey giving their views on whether they agree with the Council’s proposed ambitions and priorities for the next five years.
The full draft Reigate & Banstead 2025 plan can be viewed on the Council’s website at www.reigate-banstead.gov.uk/rbbc2025 and comments submitted via an online survey. For those without internet access, paper copies of the plan are available and comments can be made in writing.
Cllr Mark Brunt, Council Leader, says: “I am proud that the Council has continued to deliver great services at a time when public sector funding is tight.
“We want to make sure that the work that we do continues to meet the needs of our residents and local businesses. That is why we are seeking views on our new draft plan: Reigate & Banstead 2025.
“The plan outlines what we want to deliver over and above our statutory duties, and is structured around three themes: People, Place and Organisation. As well as outlining our ambitious plans for the borough, it also shares our commitments for how we will deliver them. This includes our commitment to environmental sustainability and tackling climate change, high quality core services, effective and clear communication, and putting residents and customers at the heart of what we do.
“If you live in the borough, work here or visit regularly, I would encourage you to let us know what you think. Do you agree with the priorities we’ve identified, or is something missing? Reigate & Banstead is your borough, and our final plan will be better with your input.”
The public consultation runs from 22 July to 16 September 2019.
Following the consultation comments made will be taken into account as the Council finalises its Reigate & Banstead 2025 plan. It is anticipated that the final plan will be adopted by the end of the year.
