Asking residents of Bucks for your views

HaveYourSayHandEar FBr

The new Buckinghamshire Council Shadow Authority is currently undertaking two public engagement exercices to gather the views of residents living in Buckinghamshire. 

Residents' survey - communication and satisfaction

The survey has started and runs until Friday 22 November 2019.

As the five councils work together to create the new Buckinghamshire Council we want to understand the views and attitudes of people from across the county. This will help us to understand how best to communicate with residents, identify priorities for service development and measure satisfaction with local services. The results will be used to inform priorities and provide a baseline, ahead of the launch of the new council.

The survey is being conducted by telephone interviews with a representative sample of approximately 1,400 Buckinghamshire residents. Following the telephone interviews there will be a small number of focus groups to explore key issues in more detail (residents will be asked to take part in the groups during the telephone call).

MEL Research, who have over 30 years' experience of delivering community consultations and surveys, have been commissioned to do this research.  For more details about this company please visit the MEL Research website.

The results will be publicly available in January 2020. If you have any queries about the residents' survey please email unitarycomms@buckscc.gov.uk

Your council, your services, your views - priorities and budget consultation

At the same time as the residents' survey is taking place, the Shadow Authority for Buckinghamshire Council is running a public consultation asking all residents, local organisations and businesses in Buckinghamshire to let us know what they think the new council’s priorities should be and what the budget in 2020/2021 should be spent on.

You can take part in the online survey (external website) now.
