If you are a resident of York you will soon have the chance to have your say on City of York Council and citywide services when a new annual survey takes place next week from 24 May to 18 June.
The Big York Survey will provide an opportunity for people to raise their views, feedback and ideas on citywide services, and more importantly how improvements can be made to deliver them across the city.
The council is encouraging residents to take part and complete the survey, which focuses on a range of topics including York’s economy, communities, protecting vulnerable people, protecting the environment and travelling and transport in York.
Cllr James Alexander, Labour Leader of City of York Council, said: “With over 200,000 residents living in York, it’s almost impossible for me to speak to every single person direct and hear their views about how the council is run. This survey is a way for them to provide this feedback and to make sure we’re delivering these services in the right way.
“We want residents to know that we’re listening. So, this is all a part of a new listening council initiative, giving people the chance to tell us what they think about council run services.
“This is the first citywide survey the council has carried out in a number of years, so I encourage as many residents as possible to take part.”
To complete the survey online visit www.york.gov.uk/consultation/ from Thursday 24 May. Alternatively residents can complete the FREEPOST copy, which are being posted to a sample of households in the city this month. Copies must be sent back to the council by Monday 18 June 2012.
As part of the Listening Council initiative, and the Big York Survey, the council will be carrying out other forms of engagement with residents in the coming months.
