Melton Borough Council Resident Survey 2019

Published Tuesday, 11th June 2019

.

Following the recent local elections the council is keen to hear from residents about what matters to them and what they think needs to change as the council begins development of a new Corporate Strategy 2020-2024.

To ensure the strategy is well informed the council will be undertaking a ‘Resident Survey’

Leader of the Council, Cllr Joe Orson said: “As part of creating a dynamic strategy we are committed to engaging with the views of our residents and communities, and acting upon this valuable insight. To make informed choices we need to know how satisfied our residents are with their area as a place to live and the services received from their Council.

“We want to be proactive in enhancing the quality of life for everyone in the Borough of Melton to achieve a sustainable, prosperous and vibrant community; a place where people want to live, work and visit. The feedback gained from this survey will be key in helping the Council to assess how well it is performing and reshaping how we deliver services in the future.”

An independent research agency, Marketing Means Ltd., has been commissioned to carry out the work. The survey will be sent to a random sample of 5,000 households across Melton Borough. The predicted level of response will ensure we achieve results which are representative of the wider population of the Borough. The survey will be supplemented by the face-to-face interviewing of younger residents, 18-24 year olds, to ensure a diverse range of insight.

The survey is expected to reach participants over the next week and results to become available from September.
