A council is launching an annual survey to help shape future services and plans.

Maldon District Council is launching the annual residents and business survey on Monday (September 21).

The survey will be available for six weeks until November 1.

Last year 520 residents and 43 businesses responded to the questionnaire which covered everything from general views about the district, health and wellbeing and climate change to questions about the council services and facilities.

Richard Holmes, Director of Service Delivery, said; “I would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to last year’s survey. The results of the first survey in December 2019 have given the Council some useful feedback and we are feeding this into our improvement plans.

"Gathering information like this is one of the best ways of understanding what people across the District think and the valuable information that we get helps us to deliver the best services that we can.

"I would like to encourage as many residents and businesses as possible to complete the survey."
