Dales residents invited to rate council and shape its future priorities

Local residents are being given the opportunity to rate the services provided for them by Derbyshire Dales District Council.

Feedback from the survey will help the Council prioritise its services offering and inform its Corporate Plan for the next four years.

More than 4,500 Dales residents, selected a random, will receive an invitation in the post to take part in the survey, but any resident aged 16 and over can take part online before the deadline of 31 March at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/residentsurvey

An added incentive to take part is being entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win a £50 High Street voucher.

The District Council's Chief Executive Paul Wilson said:

"This is a big opportunity for local people to tell us which of the services we provide matter most to them. This in turn will help us to prioritise and improve those services up to 2023, giving them special focus."

The survey includes questions on the importance of decent jobs and homes for local people, keeping the district clean and safe and community services such as markets and leisure facilities.
