PEOPLE in Droitwich are being reminded they only have until Sunday, October 3, to fill in Wychavon’s Residents’ Survey.
The annual questionnaire gives people across the district the chance to have their say on what they think of their area and local services.
This year, the survey includes questions on what makes an area a good place to live and priorities for improvement. It also asks for views on community strengths, loneliness and isolation and our response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Feedback will be used to improve services and the ongoing recovery from the pandemic. A summary of the results will be published anonymously on the council website.
Last year, the survey received 1,280 responses and, while most respondents were happy with their local area as a place to live, concerns were raised that rubbish and littering had increased.
That prompted the council to launch outdoor anti-litter educational sessions in schools, which more than 500 children have participated in so far.
Wychavon’s Adopt a Street scheme, which now involves more than 600 individuals, businesses and community groups regularly carrying out litter picks in their area has also combated the problem.
The survey takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete but progress can be saved so it can be completed in stages.
