Issues & Concerns Survey
We are always keen to identify the issues, concerns and worries that affect your daily life and bring them to the attention of local government and private or commercial service providers. Our “Issues & Concerns” survey was run through September and October 2016 and we are now able to share the results. The “Changing Times” video below summarises the results. A more comprehensive breakdown of the survey’s findings can be downloaded here: Issues & Concerns (word file).
