Your views count in district-wide residents’ survey
There could be a knock at the door for people in the Vale of White Horse in the next few weeks as the district council undertakes its first residents’ survey since 1995.
From 2 July the council will be contacting 1,100 individuals to conduct face-to-face interviews to find out their views on council services, how satisfied they are with the council and how well informed they feel about the council’s work.
The results of the survey will help the council identify areas for improvement and set targets to check its progress against.
Historically, the Vale has used citizens panels for this information, but has now decided to conduct a residents’ survey as well after positive feedback from other local authorities in the area that have used them to good effect.
The interviews will be carried out by M-E-L Research. All representatives will carry ID but anyone who is unsure or would like more information can contact the council’s consultation officer Kate Prince on 01235 547614 or email@example.com. Information about the survey and other ways to give your views are also available at www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/haveyoursay
Cllr Matthew Barber, Leader of Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “Keeping up to speed with the views of residents is vitally important for us. This survey will help us decide our long-term priorities going forward as well as helping us find ways to make specific improvements to our services.”
