Council launches citizens survey to shape the year ahead in Redditch

Correspondent 2nd Sep, 2019

A WIDE-ranging survey to help inform Redditch Borough Council’s thinking for the year ahead has launched.

The annual community survey asks residents for their views on issues affecting them, their local area, and borough council services.

The results will then reported to the authority’s councillors and officers.

“Listening to what our residents tell us is crucially important to us, and this annual survey is one of the ways we do that,” said Councillor David Thain, portfolio holder for corporate management.

“It’s a window into what people in Redditch think about a range of issues – and we’d like to hear from you.”

The leader of the authority, Coun Matt Dormer, added: “I hope lots of people take part and contribute to the results.

“Just this month the results of the last survey were part of top-table policy discussions as we plan for the future.

“It all helps to understand how people in Redditch are thinking.”

The 2019 survey is available for anyone to take part at www.redditchbc.gov.uk/consultations, and will also go before the council’s Community Panel, a group of residents who choose to actively take part in regular engagement sessions.

It covers a range of areas and should take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, with the option to ‘save and continue’ if you want to take a break while filling it in.

The closing date for responses is Sunday, September 29, 2019.

For more information or for paper copies call 01527 64252 ext. 2409.
