Telford & Wrekin Council launches resident's survey on their response to pandemic

Telford and Wrekin residents have the chance to have their say about their local area, council services and the Council’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Council has today (29 July) launched a residents’ survey - all residents are invited to share their views.

Until 4 September 2020, Telford and Wrekin residents can voice their opinions on the Council’s response and support during the coronavirus pandemic as well as how to make the borough an even better place to live.

They can also say how the Council can better deliver services as well as share their ideas on tackling climate change and on several other themes impacting the borough.

Residents can also opt in to join the “Telford and Wrekin Community Panel” that will re-launch later in the year. This will be a representative group of residents who volunteer to give their views on a range of local issues and services.

Everyone who completes the survey and provides their email address will receive discount e-vouchers (once the survey has ended) to use at a range of shops and businesses located on borough’s high streets.

They can also enter a prize draw where one winner will receive a £100 voucher and ten others will each receive a £25 voucher to spend on local high street businesses.

Council Leader Shaun Davies said: ““We’re here to help and to do our best for our borough and the best way to do that is to listen to our residents, to understand their needs and shape the services we provide to them. 

“We urge residents to complete the survey - tell us how they think we have done during the coronavirus pandemic, what we could have done better and how we can further help as life gradually returns to normal.

“Tell us also what you think about the area you live in and how we can improve it for the better.

“Everyone can play their part in creating a better borough so please take a moment to fill in this survey and make your voice heard.”

“We also encourage everyone to shop local so we can all support our high-street businesses as much as we can throughout these difficult times.

“You can play your part in this as well by completing the survey.

“Discount e-vouchers at a variety of local shops and businesses will be emailed to you once the survey ends and you can also enter a prize draw with a chance to win further vouchers to use on our borough’s high streets.

“We hope this will encourage more people to tell us their views but also to spend locally so our high streets can thrive again.”
