Council survey: last chance to have your say
Residents have until Sunday to take part in a survey about how the council can best help them in the future.
The council wants to make sure its services reflect the priorities of local people, especially given all the changes resulting from the pandemic.
Since early November it has been asking residents to have their say by filling in an anonymous survey, which will help it plan ahead. The last day of the survey is Sunday 5 December.
The survey asks how the pandemic has affected people's finances, health and wellbeing. It also asks for views on transport in the borough and the local environment. Other topics include the ways residents prefer to contact the council and use its services, and how much people get involved with their local community or voluntary groups.
The Leader of the Council, Cllr Graham Burgess, said: "We're really grateful to the many people who have already taken part in the survey, but we'd urge anyone who hasn't had their say to do so this week.
"Everyone's views are important. The council is planning for the future and we want to make sure we understand the needs of local people."
The survey is easy to do online.
If residents can't get online, they can call 023 9258 4242 and council staff will take them through the questions on the phone.
