Have your say in council survey

RESIDENTS in Harlow are being asked for their views on a range of issues as part of a County wide resident survey.

Around 12,000 people across the county will be sent questionnaires from this week. The aim is to get at least 400 responses from each borough, district and city area.

Surveys on behalf of Essex County Council will be sent out by post to a random sample of residents by independent research company BMG over the next six to seven weeks.

The survey will ask questions on a wide range of topics including waste and recycling, volunteering, health and general satisfaction of the services and value for money provided by Essex County Council and Harlow Council.

In Harlow, Essex County Council provides services like street lighting, pavement and roads, health and social care, recycling centres, libraries, youth and children services and education. Harlow Council is responsible for services such as street cleaning, waste and recycling collections, maintenance of green spaces, environmental health, planning, licensing and Council housing. Harlow Council also provides the playhouse, paddling pools, Pets’ Corner and playgrounds.

Councillor Mark Wilkinson, Leader of Harlow Council, said: “It is important that through regular independent surveys Councils find out what their residents think so they can look at their priorities and review how they are doing. There are questions about Harlow Council in the survey and we will use the findings to review our own priorities and policies.”
