Wychavon residents urged to have their say

Residents are being asked to set out their priorities as part of Wychavon's annual residents' survey.

The survey will only take 10 to 15 minutes to complete and feedback will be used by councillors to influence the projects Wychavon focuses time and money on over the next 12 months.

Residents will also be asked to give their views on how satisfied they are with Wychavon as a place to live, the way the council runs services and if they believe they are receiving value for money.

More than 1,000 people took part in last year's survey with 81% of people saying they are satisfied with their local areas as a place to live and 63% happy with how Wychavon runs things.

In response to feedback from previous surveys Wychavon has created a £150,000 fund to support communities to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic and launched ambitious investment prospectuses for the future of Droitwich Spa, Evesham and Pershore town centres. In response to concerns about litter, Wychavon also set-up the popular Adopt a Street campaign, funded free anti-litter education sessions in schools and installed more than 50 new bins, taking the total to more than 1,000 across the district. There has also been a renewed focus on further improving the level of customer service we provide.

Cllr Bradley Thomas, Leader of Wychavon District Council, said: "The views of our residents are important to us and they really do make a difference.
"I urge as many people as possible to fill in the survey and take the opportunity to express their views and help guide us in our decision-making."

The survey closes on Sunday, 23 October 2022.
