Your council needs you!

Nottinghamshire County Council is once again seeking residents’ views on council services and priorities for the coming year as part of the 2019 residents survey. The results will help shape the council’s planning and budget setting for the year ahead. In 2018, the results showed people wanted to see more investments in road maintenance, so this year in response the Council launched a state-of-the-art pothole filling machine called the Roadmaster.

The survey launched on Monday 4th November and is open to all Nottinghamshire residents aged 18 or above to complete before it closes on Friday 13th December.

Over 1,000 people will be canvased by an independent polling company who will carry out face-to-face street surveys, whilst all other residents can take part by completing the survey online at or by picking up a printed copy from one of Nottinghamshire’s 60 libraries.

Last year’s survey also highlighted that more than 80% of Nottinghamshire residents said they identified with the county and were happy with their local area as a place to live.

Councillor Kay Cutts, Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “The Council strives to provide Nottinghamshire residents with the highest quality services and the best possible value-for- money, but this cannot be done without people sharing their views.

“Every response is valuable to us and will help us to shape the future of your council and the services that you access. The survey only takes a few short minutes to complete and we look forward to hearing about how we are doing, what we could do better and what you want to see from our services in the future.”
